It’s Sunday morning and I’m pulling up to my friend’s house to pick up her niece for lunch. It is snowing out. My flowers are still in bloom, it’s only the 3rd week of September and it’s snowing out. But that’s not what was remarkable. What was remarkable was that as I sat there watching the snow land on my windshield, I heard the weather report come on the radio and it informed me that it was partly cloudy out with lots of sunshine breaking through and temps that would be considered balmy for September in Anchorage. Hmmm, I thought, is that weatherman actually in Anchorage? Can he look out the window? Has it been so long since last winter that he doesn’t recognize the white stuff that’s falling from the sky? Does he think we’re just having a bad pollen day?
