We’re breaking up.
Not you and me silly! We are Best. Friends. Forever.
Here in Alaska the snow and ice are breaking up. Alaskans call it “break up” – they’re creative like that. It makes everything a gross mess for a few weeks, but it is also a sign that spring is right around the corner.
We also have 14 hours of sunlight now. It’s swell.
Here are some signs of break up.
This is the sled we lost in December. Oops.
That is my backyard. Grody.
Another sure sign of spring is damage to trees. The moose do it when they rub off the velvet as their antlers come in. My friend Autumn told me it has nerve endings or something that irritates them. Feel free to Google that, there is a good chance I have my facts wrong.
Speaking of moose, my AWESOME friend Heather sent us a book today. She rocks.
I love these books, especially this super-sized edition. Thanks Aunty Heather for the excellent surprise! You’re the best & we love you!
One thing you should know, the book is a little misleading. If you actually give a moose a muffin…it’s going to stomp this snot out of you. Just an FYI for when you visit the tundra.
See, I’m here for you. That’s why we are BFF’s.
