North To Alaska
That's it - we're moving to Alaska (don't I wish). The current temperature in Anchorage is 36 degrees F - tomorrow will be 40F with rain! They basically have no State Income Tax because of the vast oil reserves and drilling. It's gorgeous in the summer and the air seems so much cleaner up there. Besides, I like bears and antelope - they are better than bugs and snakes, in my viewpoint anyway. ha ha
The temperature indicated in the picture is tomorrow morning's predicted temperatures (schools already closed in a lot of areas for today and tomorrow - again). At least my house is nice and warm - some people don't have that luxury and my heart goes out to them.
There is a desperate shortage of Propane Gas in our state. Some of the winterized cottages (turned into year round homes) up north and mobile homes that use propane gas to heat with can't get any propane. Several restaurants up in the north woods have closed because they can't get the propane to cook with. Our Governor is working on the issue. The price of Propane Gas in our state has skyrocketed from $1+ per gallon to $7+ per gallon.
Tomorrow we have a couple of appointments to run to. I'm not looking forward to driving out in it. I always worry about the car breaking down, but it never has in all these years of driving in this kind of weather.
I know most of the US is in a deep freeze, so I'm really not complaining - much! ha ha I do know we need to fire Mother Nature!
