I don’t have a picture to show off what I finally witnessed this season, but the feeling for those who know and appreciate what I am talking about is enough. It has been raining like mad at sea level in Juneau and I have been wondering what is happening on the mountaintops, but it has been too cloudy to see. We got a little reprieve from the rain today and when we headed out to meet some friends earlier today there was fresh snow peeking out from under the clouds on the back side of Mount Juneau. At first sight I let out a scream and my husband almost ran off the road.
Yay! It’s starting and I can’t wait to whiff that cold electric smell and have my skis glide across perfectly formed crystals.
