Wednesday, April 14th

Woke up to a winter wonderland today! It was really snowing hard for most of the morning. In fact, it was the 3rd biggest April snow in Anchorage history. The western sides of town got 8+ inches and we got about 8 inches downtown. It was a wet heavy snow that did break a limb out of a birch tree across the street. It was really beautiful to watch it coming down.

After work, we met up with our SBF Mindy and her cousin, Bo, and went to the Golden Corral for dinner. Greg proceeded to put on an eating display. Probably a good thing Greg swore off overeating last weekend or he really would have done some damage! We both had a portion of grilled steak that was delightful. Other mentionable goodies were shrimp, scallops, pork steaks and roast, and catfish. We were stuffed when we left.

We then went to Super Wal-Mart and tried to walk off some of that full feeling. Got some essentials and then back home. We then set out on foot to take a few snow pictures. It is supposed to warm back up to the mid 40s by this weekend. That beautiful snow won't be around long. Today's snowstorm did prompt the state to extend the removal of studded tires from tomorrow's deadline until May 1st.
