One Man's Alaska

The termination dust has landed

Date Created: September 29, 2010

As I drove back from to Wasilla, Alaska from Seward on Sunday (September 26, 2010), the "termination dust" was floating all around the car. Termination dust? That's local slang for the first snow of the winter season, indicating the end of the summer has arrived.

Here's a view of the termination dust on one of the mountain ranges here in Wasilla. This photo was taken from the Wasilla Walmart parking lot:

I'm not sure if I'm ready for my first Alaskan winter, but I don't think I get a vote, lol. All right, bring it on.
