That's right folks, snow is officially headed our way! Autumn was unusually long and warm for SE Alaska. I didn't even break out my winter coat until last week. But, now we are in for it. Temperatures are supposed to get down into the single digits this week and snow is predicted almost every day.
Thankfully, Cody and I got the snow tires put back on the cars this weekend (woo-hoo for studs). Here in Juneau we run studded tires during the winter. Legally, you can run them from September-April (typical times of the year when it is snowing). We were lucky to keep them off of the cars until November this year! Lots of other "winter prep" is happening at our house this weekend. We have to winterize the windows and doors, find our snow shovel (I am hoping its buried in the shed), and do any last minute outdoor cleaning. Busy, busy!
I'll leave you all with this pretty picture I snapped on Friday night. Cody and I were outside walking the dog when the moon popped up over the mountains. Beautiful :) I hope everyone is keeping warm!
Has it snowed yet where you live?
What do you do to prepare for winter?
