We are back from our short vacation in Anchorage, it was mostly a quick trip to see family and we'd all been really looking forward to it.  (Man, it felt like such a luxury to spend a few nights in a hotel!) We had a great time visiting and the dry roads this late in the year (not to mention dramatically warmer temps in Anchorage) really made it enjoyable.  It was also nice to see mountains again - Fairbanks/North Pole are in a very large valley surrounded by ridges and it takes a little bit of a drive to get back into the Alaska Range and the Kuskokwim Range.  We can see them, just not very well and after growing up on the coast, I do miss the mountains at times.  However, it's also nice not being blocked off from the rest of the world or having the electricity go out for weeks during the winters due to avalanches!
I did forget about how slippery anchorage can be compared to Fairbanks and brought my slipperiest shoes possible, I can't believe I didn't bit the ice at all!  The boots are great but they have such a flat, slippery sole with zero traction.
