It was actually poring when I took these pictures! There was a storm warning in affect for Fairbanks and the the surrounding area the past two days with freezing rain and snow. Even though I expected the rain, I really wasn't ready for it! It's pretty rare for Fairbanks to get freezing rain, this is the third time since I've moved up here that I've seen it and ugh, not happy to see it again. Anchorage always gets really awful freezing rain and black ice, the driving conditions there are worse that what we get in Fairbanks, we just get the miserably cold here. (So it's a trade off, less drivers on the road and better driving conditions but with horrible cold vs way warmer weather but more drivers and worse driving conditions.)
I look a little bit like a drowned rat here but I really had too much fun taking the pictures. at least with it being able to rain that means the temperatures are in the high 30s, low 40s and it feels amazing, I actually got too warm with my parka on. I guess that's one of the great things about cashmere, it's surprisingly warm!
Creamer's Field is one of my favorite places to take pictures, I love the field and the big Dairy barn and there's so many fun little trails around it. Fairbanks, Delta and Nanana all have farms scattered throughout and it's sort of different for me to drive by the farms. I'm so use to Seward and living right up in the mountains and along the coast, flat land always confuses me! My grandparents farmed down by Cheraw in Colorado and visiting them there would always freaked me out, the land was so flat and there were so few trees in the area I felt like I was going to fly right off of the earth. (Weird. Mountains make you crazy I guess.)
Yikes, that was a weird little ramble. I'm going to blame it on being hopped up on cold meds right now. I was so out of it this morning that I tried to use the toothbrush to shave. The embarrassing part isn't that I tried, but that it actually took me a while to figure out why it wasn't working.
That's me, Katie, brilliant genius and such a special little snowflake. (Speeecial.)
