I just wanted to say hi and that I am missing the November Darkness of Alaska!
I am in the lower 48 now... I never had to drive into the sunrise after a night shift while I was in AK (at least not in the winter!). Tday, as I drove home and climbed into bed (with the sun lighting up my room) I was dreaming of the sweet darkness that makes sleeping during the day so peaceful.
(There aren't any Northern lights here either
Enjoy the winter!
