Well, at this rate, just living in Alaska, we should be about 400 years old……that’s new math that says we live in the 100 year flood plain. We still aren’t sure if “Care’s Corner” still exists, but as soon as it warms up (it’s 18 degrees right now) we will venture out this afternoon. The water was receeding yesterday, the main channel of water has changed for the 3rd time, and we aren’t exactly sure what we are left with.
We lost about 2 acres of our hay area, and about 100 trees total. All the land that were the wooded paths to Care’s Corner are gone, and looking on the bright side, once the river freezes over this winter – we can get firewood for the next couple years!!
The Northern Lights were out spectacularly last week – am trying to get a cool shot Bill took added to my blog, so look later today – I’m going to try one more trick to see if I can get it. I smell applesauce cooking down and the sund is rising slowly on the snow covered Talkeetnas…..couldn’t ask for a better day……except if I could fine Care’s Corner! (Bill says that God just knew I’m getting older so don’t need to walk as far!! Very funny, dear!) By the way – the “puppy” we have? We had him at vet for pre-neuter check…..at 5 months he’s 75 lbs and she thinks he’ll easily get to 125-150 lbs. She thinks he has more Mastiff than St. Bernard –but then again said – could be a mix of both – oh joy!! At least he’s short haired!
