Happy late Thanksgiving! – and pics from home

Posted by lwpetersen | November 27, 2011 | Fairbanks

We had a good holiday here, friends at the cabin enjoying food and playing games. I hope family and friends all had a good long weekend too. I hear it’s been pretty warm back in New England. Temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s at the end of November is just not cool. Hopefully more snow comes soon. Here in Fairbanks it has been almost exclusively far below 0&#0176F for over 3 weeks. Our road has looked like this since the beginning of October:

Thought I’d share a picture of our nice clean home on Thanksgiving morning too.

Home - and Otis

That’s Otis trying to figure out what to do with himself. I have three weeks left of classes and finals and then Kate and I are New Hampshire bound for the holidays. It’s a little scary since we haven’t left Alaska since August 2010. I think this is the longest period of time I’ve ever spent in one state.
