that makes Alaskan drivers worse than usual.
On the first snowy day, even long-time Alaskans drive like they've never seen snow before. On the first rainy day after a long dry spell, Alaskans slow down and drive like the pavement's icy. And on sunny days, like it was this morning, they drive like they're blinded by that big, bright light in the sky.
And to top it off, Anchorage is finishing its annual construction season, and there's uneven pavement to navigate.
There's something about watching a 1-ton 4x4 with 35" tires creeping at 1/2 mile per hour over a 2" drop off, as it any faster might cause 'splodey bits to go flying, or something.
But we're safely at home now, and intending to stay. Besides, we have several episodes of Homeland to catch up on, and there's fresh meat loaf to enjoy.
Y'all be safe out there.
