This is the first entry in A Juneau Journal – a WordPress blog that picks up where I left off documenting our life and travels on the Trouser Rollers website. That website is a sprawling creation I lovingly produced during 8 years of roaming the wild blue yonder, eventually bringing us to this place. If you followed our doings on our website, please change your bookmark to this new URL (Internet address/location.) Oh, yes, and you can subscribe to a news feed (see the RSS button above) which will let you know each time there’s a new blog entry.
We had about 8 inches of snow yesterday, and 5-6 more expected today. A beautiful white Christmas. Temperature just below freezing, visibility low. The snow ended an 11-day straight run of sunshine, snow still on the ground from an earlier dump. It’s a gorgeous place, snuggled in at the bottom of Mt. Juneau on the edge of the Gastineau Channel. I’m working on my photos so you’ll see what I mean. The current downside: the vomiting ‘flu has struck our town. This norovirus is a nasty projectile-puking little critter. It bit the first member of our pack (Jasper, age 12) yesterday so the rest of us are taking evasive action with much hand sanitizing.
