Seems like if it isn't snowing this month, it drops down to near -40. It's great to finally get some decent snow after last winters drought, but enough already. It snowed over a foot and a half in the past week or so and over two feet for the month. And as soon as it stops, it's back down below zero. But it sure makes the mushing trails a lot smoother and gives the global warming skeptics something to gloat about. Here's a couple of photo's from a recent dog run. Spuds likes to roll around on his back when he gets hot. Looks weird, but he never gets tangled up in his tug line.
