Rainy Days & Mondays

It was 48 degrees and raining when we awoke. If we didn't need the rain, I'd go on about it ... never mind. :)

The plane crash in Soldotna which killed all ten aboard is just awful. This photo from the Daily News tells the story:
All that's left of the de Havilland Otter

Hundreds of residents, animals evacuated as wildfires threaten Two Rivers (northeast of Fairbanks). 

This one was started by an Army artillery exercise. Most of the animals are Iditarod sled dogs: Two Rivers, an unincorporated community, is "considered by some to the unofficial mushing capitol", per the article. It's home to a number of mushers including Aliy Zirkle.

Another reminder to live life to it's fullest whenever you can. Minus roller coaster fun, man I can't stand those. I get so nervous.

I agree, Max. We should each think of each moment as the only one we have.

Re: the roller coasters, I don't know whether to laugh or sympathize. But I understand.
