Snow Day

By , November 11, 2017

Haines has gotten an occasional fine skiff of snow recently. Friday overnight, we got the homestead’s first snowfall of the year.

We awoke to a light but steady snow. By mid-morning 2¼ inches had accumulated, with more on the way.

A Whiff of Winter

By , October 17, 2016

The forecast warned us, but I didn’t believe it until I saw it early Sunday morning. It wasn’t much, merely a skiff, or, perhaps more appropriately, a whiff of snow.

I can’t remember the last time we had snow this early. More commonly, we get our first snow closer to Halloween, often the next morning. But before Alaska Day (October 18th)? I can’t recall.
