November begins

Sunday morning we got up and went to the big book sale at the Loussac Library. We bought a few books from the Alaska collection. We had a fun time just browsing through all the books.
It was a beautiful day so we stepped outside and snapped a few photos.
 You will notice that the Chugach Mountains are getting very white with the new snow. It has been creeping down from the higher elevations recently.
 We still have very little snow on the ground here in town.

We usually have 8 inches of snow by the end of October and this year we only had about 3 inches. I'm sure more will arrive soon.

We stopped by the election building and got in line to take advantage of early voting. It took us an hour and 15 minutes to cast our ballots. The line was outside the building when we first got there.

Greg began a new job detail Monday morning. For the next 60 days, he will be working at the BLM's Campbell Creek Science Center as their Public Affairs Specialist. When I dropped him off for work Monday morning, it was only 2 degrees out there! This morning there was a fresh blanket of snow on the road to the center. He saw snowshoe hare tracks as he walked down the trail to the building. I'm sure he will encounter an array of wildlife during his detail!
