Friday Forecast

A friend of mine recently suggested that I have a weather report for here in Alaska, and I thought it was a wonderful idea!  I was always curious about the Alaska weather before we moved here, and I always thought that it would be so cold, and I also was very curious about the whole darkness/light thing.  So each Friday or every other Friday I will be "reporting" the Alaskan weather.

Here is a picture that I took last night while out walking with a good friend of mine.  I was able to watch this rain cloud move into our area and then leave our area.  When we lived in Maryland we were not able to see anything like that.  We could see clouds approaching but nothing like yesterday.  I was very intrigued by it.

This past week we had some beautiful weather.  I am to report we have had no snow! We did have some rain yesterday but it only lasted a few minutes.  The temperature has reached to about the 50s, and I saw that next week we are to reach 60 later in the week. 

Here is a picture that I took last night.  However, I would like you to play a little guessing game; what time of night do you think this was taken?  If you would like to take a guess please leave a comment here or on my Facebook page.  Tomorrow at 0900 I will be posting the time.

***This is taken right outside my back door, sorry there is not a better view***

This picture was taken at 0520 this morning.  However, around 0400 I can start seeing some brightness coming through our bedroom window.  I am still very intrigued by how long it can stay light here, and June 21st is called the Solstice which is the longest day of light; 22 hours. 

Remember do not forget to take a guess on what time of night that picture was taken!


  1. Hmmm...7:30 p.m.? I'm not sure how the time works out when you are at a higher latitude, but I bet it will turn out to really be 10:30, LOL!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm glad you liked my pillows!

  2. How neat! We have some friends in Alaska too... I can't remember which one, but it's the most northern Army post?!

  3. @Mom2fur the photo was taken at 10:38pm...lol

    @Jessica your friend may be where we are because we are in Fairbanks, AK and this is the most Northern post that I know of. Please let me know when you find out???
