We exchanged e-mails with our friend Michael in Alaska today. He said this cold spell had been with them for several days, but now it has moderated up there. We think that's the same weather system we have had so perhaps their warmer weather will get to us later this week. Today in Anchorage the temperature was in the mid 20s while we were barely in the teens. I looked at their forecast and they will be getting another downward swing in a few days.
We haven't seen our flock of turkeys for almost a week. They must be having a hard time finding food since it rained and froze. This picture was the last time we saw them here at our house. Now there is a crust on everything. They may be up above us on the farm. Someone told us they have sheep up there now - or maybe it was goats. Anyway, farms are a good place for them to find food. We wish them luck.
