Where's winter?

Fifteen of the Quest teams have now finished with the leading 7 teams beating the previous record. It continues mild throughout Alaska and the Yukon and is forecast to continue for a week or two anyway. Guess

are having some effect.

Here in Homer, it again was near 50 at one point today when the sun came out in between rain and snowflakes as big as snowmen. Not too many people out enjoying winter sports here, although there is plenty of snow at high elevations. We made a dash for the beach in between squalls. As always, we had the dogs...the real reason for going. And since we are dog sitting two of Ruby's puppies, it is all the more reason to get out. Maybe the beginning of a Yukon Quest Jack Russell team...
