Finally, some fresh snow!

After several weeks, we finally saw snow again this Thursday and Friday. We probably got about 4 inches downtown by the time the little burst of snow was over. This is not even close to their forecast of up to 13 inches! Still, this was enough to make the landscape light and brighten things up a bit.
We are now back to over 7 hours of daylight a day and adding around 5 minutes of light each day to that.
 We decided to get out today and enjoy our new membership to the Alaska Botanical Garden that we received as a Christmas gift.
Thanks Scarbrough Family!

We took an unplanned sightseeing tour when we missed the turnoff for the garden.
There were a lot of people out in the nearby park enjoying the new snow.

We finally made our way back to the garden and walked around a bit.
But as the temp was below 0, we didn't stay out too long!

 The bitter cold is supposed to stick for several more days. Brrr.
