Winter starts in October here!
This past weekend Trace and I moved into a new apartment. It's much more comfortable than the last place! More privacy with a country feeling I suppose. It's a smaller apartment on the first floor of a huge log house. It's up in the foothills off the Farmer's Loop... Our view out the front window overlooks Fairbanks even on a cloudy day and we get an amazing shot of the Alaska Range on a clear day. Our landlords are a truly genuine Fairbanks-grown family. They're a really nice couple with two boys that have totally reminded me of myself running around with my brothers when I was younger. They even brought us pumpkin muffins fresh out of the oven last night after dinner!
We're currently sitting back on the couch winding down from the days events. Tracie's reading her crazy novel 'Haunted' and I'm a bit restless, probably half annoyed that the Tigers game was postponed and half listening to our landlord's kid playing piano up stairs. We're both doing very well and happy. We posted some more pictures on our flickr account. The link is in one of the past blogs. Hope everyone is well these days. We miss you!
Oh yeah, weather... It hasn't been above 22 degrees for the past week and the sun rises at about 9am and sets at about 4:30. There is a definite layer of snow on the ground that supposedly won't melt until next spring.
