OK, finally got DSL at home, so I can post the odd picture. This is what the Tundra Garden looks like in mid-June (which means the snow has been gone for less than a month. This is actually stage II of construction, which I haven't gotten to in the history yet, but it give a bit of an idea. It doesn't look anything like this at the moment.
It's -40F here at the moment, with essentially no wind. So no wind chill, but lots of ice fog. And no mail or papers since the ash from Augustine Volcano is disrupting flights from Anchorage.
