Perhaps We Were a Bit Premature
I told Yukon not to haul out the canoe from behind the clubhouse. It's like washing the car on a sunny day; the next is guaranteed to be rainy.
We were greeted this morning by 5 inches of new snow that grew progressively heavier in texture as the day went on. Now at 6 p.m. it is a sloppy mess.
Alaskans know better, and we know we should know better, but darn it, things were looking so darned spring-y outside we just couldn't help but get a little bit anticipatory. Not that the lakes will thaw before the end of April, but it was kind of nice to gaze upon it from the kitchen window and dream of summertime...
