Wait, that's not clouds darkening the sky. No, that would be the sun setting. Drat daylight savings. Where are they saving it and why?
I was really surprised to see that you are in AK. I am very interested in visiting AK and I was thinking of coming during my Dec brak from school but everyone says it's going to be so cold I will want to like kill myself. What's it like there in the summer? My friend said they have mosquitos that are my size (heavily exagerated ofcourse). I think it's really cool to live in AK. I just learned about the lake they found below all the snow, I think it's called Plasor or Laskor or something...I don't exactly remember, I just think its' neat
Seven day forecast:
70/40,66/52,76/59,74/60,70/49,68/50,73/56. Clear and breezy.
Tied with Vermont for best fall colors in the world.
Speaking of blankets and mosquitos, I remember a time a few years ago when I helped out with a canoe trip for our summer camp. We camped on a small knoll in the middle of the swamp, and I have never seen mosquitos like I saw that day. I'd covered every part of my body with repellent and pulled my hooded sweatshirt tight around my face, exposing as little skin as humanly possible to those evil bloodsuckers. We couldn't stay still long enough to get a fire started. They sqooshed into my ears, stuck in my eyes, and every time I tried to breathe, I inhaled them in my nose. You could pick any spot on your body and swat seven mosquitos in one blow, that's how dense they were. God help you if you had to go to the bathroom. We eventually gave up on the fire and hid out in our tents until morning. Who wants Smore-squito sandwiches, anyway?
