One Man's Alaska

Cloudy weather blues

September 5, 2011

We're going through another one of those stretches here in Palmer, Alaska where I haven't seen the sun since, well, I don't know when. I remember thinking I should have gone to the State Fair last Monday or Tuesday, so the sun may have been out then, or at least it was less cloudy.

But today it's both clouds and low-hanging fog, and if I'm not mistaken, some of those clouds are leaving another sprinkle of "termination dust" on the mountain tops.

In other news, I'm selling off a lot of my stuff on Craigslist as I get ready to move back to the Lower-48. The weirdest part of that is selling my winter tires. I thought it would be hard to sell them because they're an unusual size, but I just put the ad up for them yesterday, and I've already received a lot of emails about them.

Besides selling things, I'm also getting ready for one more tour of Alaska before I leave. If you've read this blog before, you'll know where to find me: Talkeetna and Seward. :) I hope to treat these last 2-3 weeks as a vacation as much as possible.
