First Snow in Homer, Alaska
The street we live on
Snow, quiet whiteness
whispers “Yes, winter is here.”
cold air briskly fresh
Last week, we experienced our first Alaska snow. It started on Thursday morning, was followed with cold rain on Friday, then more thick snow Friday night and Saturday. Although, I bought studded snow tires in September, I haven’t driven in the snow yet. But, Brian and I walked out with cleats on our snow boots Friday afternoon, when the electricity was out for several hours throughout Homer. Oddly enough, today is much warmer and most of the snow on the street and buildings is gone. But, here are photos of our first snowy days, anyway.
