It’s March 6 and that means the Iditarod started. That event always signals almost-springtime. It’s still dark enough to see the Northern Lights when they’re out. It’s light now when we go to school and long after we let the kids go home. And the sunshine actually feels warm.
Saturday while the 62 mushers were taking off in Anchorage, we went out for snowshoeing.
Today the mushers were taking off from Willow on their restart. We had another beautiful almost-spring day, and went out to ski. It was about zero with tons of sunshine.
Two hours later we were back home. No moose sightings today. Lots of rabbit, ptarmigan, fox and moose tracks though.
It was Sunday. We’d been out. It was almost the Buzz.
