Juneau, Alaska: Freezing rain yesterday and this morning, on its way to rising temperatures.
But odd weather. For about 10 days, up until four days ago, it rained, the billowy snow all disappeared and the temperatures got to the low 40sF.
Bears out of den were sighted- scary for all, because there is nothing for them to eat, except for humans' garbage. With the segue to snow and cold weather I imagine they heaved big sighs and returned to their dens.
A man with his snow machine fell through the ice in the lake in front of our biggest local glacier last weekend and just barely made it out alive- sprawled full length he made his way through the breaking ice until he reached firmer surfaces. His snowmobile remains submerged.
