Building Project

Winter is very slowly loosing it’s grip (National Weather Service comments).  We joke here in Alaska about the seasons we have; Winter, Construction, and Hunting.  We are planing a construction project of our own this year.

As you know our house is rather small by many standards.  Our current 826 square feet gets a little tight sometimes.  The girls are growing and need more space, homeschooling is getting more involved and we desire to entertain guests more often.  Our goal is to add a dining room and extra space in the girls bedroom.  The projects page has more information.

Too Cold To Fly

This January is setting up to be one of the coldest on record here in the interior of Alaska, according to an article in today’s Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.  It has been colder than -20f or it will warm up then snow for what seems like an eternity.  What this has meant for us is that it has been too cold to travel by plane.  So today as I’m clearing my desk of months of backed-up paper work, wishing that I could be out visiting folks in the bush, I am watching some of the videos on our YouTube channel.  This video is the most popular of all and for good reason, bright sun, fresh powder and a smooth touchdown (if I say so myself).
