It's 14 degrees with a wind chill of 4, this morning. Heavy frost, from the looks of things, with nary a cloud in sight.
We'll be heading out across this frosty land soon, gathering foodstuffs for the coldest months of winter.
Naw. Don't believe everything you read. It is cold and frosty today, but "the coldest months" probably won't be.
According to the weatherguess forecast, El Nino will keep us warmer than normal through May, but with increasing precipitation. As long as we get lots of moisture into the ground, maybe this year won't be a record season for forest fires ... like last year.
Meanwhile, looks like the Iditarod's official start will be moved to Fairbanks, where there's plenty of snow. In fact, the whole course should be snowy this year. That's a good thing; last year, there was an awful lot of rocky trail they had to cover. Hard on the dogs, the mushers, and the sleds.
That's all I've got for now. Be careful out there, stay alert, and thanks for stopping by. :)
