An exciting weather event in Fairbanks! Not quite as dramatic as the Rochester ice storm of '93, but beautiful and crazy still. People were actually ice skating on the streets here and the U closed for 2 days. Our snow is normally too dry to make a snowman - in fact, I can't remember seeing one in Fairbanks before this year - so the freezing rain led to a snowman population explosion all around town. Being trapped at home for a few days was really nice for me and the kitties, not so much for Mike at the mine, but he made it home for Thanksgiving.
