    It is up to 10 below zero here..yay!! I rode today and yesterday. They were feisty because they have had a solid 2 weeks off. It has been gorgeous and sunny out during the day, but today there was some wind also, it it was icy cold.

    Jazzy, I watched your video..I wish we had weather like that here right now... I am jealous. I am very ready for spring!

    According to weather.com its 18 degrees, feels like 4. We got snow yesterday but it wasn't too bad. Tomorrow we're supposed to get a few inches of snow. Not looking forward to that.

    Yikes that's cold! Is that with or without a windchill AK?

    This morning when I woke up it was 1 below and I was freezing outside, I don't want to feel what 10 below is.

    Have you lived in Alaska all your life?

    Appylover, it was 10 below before adding on the wind...that made it feel much colder! :) I have lived in Alaska all my life, and am attached because all of my family lives here, otherwise I would probably go somewhere where horses are easier and more common, and there are more shows! :)

    It is 10 below again today, and the wind died down, so it feels absolutely warm now...if actually feels warmer than the same temp in some places because it is so dry here...humidity in the cold is what really feels chilly.

    That actually makes sense to me! I'm sorta addicted to the weather channel, and when there is a lot of humidity, its a lot colder than the same temp without the humidity.

    That's cool that you've lived in Alaska all your life. But for me, I don't know how well I would adjust to that. I can't stand the cold temperatures here, let alone anything below zero. It could be that I'm a summer baby and love the warm weather.

    I am not, however, looking forward to the snow tomorrow. Yuck!

    I am not a fan of the winters here...having my horses to ride keep me sane...otherwise I would probably get really bummed. I also ski and other things to keep busy, and stay inside a lot more. A lot of people have a problem with depression here because we get down to about 4 hours of daylight at the shortest.

    But...

    The summers, and even spring and fall are awesome. Summer is really warm (70's/80's) and sunny with about 20 hours of daylight. Everybody gets really active in the summer. I don't often come in before 10pm. It allows for a lot of riding/horse time after a full days work.

    That's awesome! (about the spring, summer and fall)

    I don't know how many hours of daylight we get, but right now, the sunrises I think between 6-7 and sets around 5ish

    In the summer I'm still asleep when the sun comes up so I don't know when it actually does, but I believe the sunsets around 9 or so. I'm hoping this summer i'll be able to ride a lot more. I always feel like a bad mommy when I can't see vega a lot.

    Jazzy, you are on fire with those avatars! I have got to go take some new pictures and change it up :). When I finally get some baby pictures, I am sure those will be circulating through. :)

    I suppose you are right about the weather...I have never been a big fan of heavy/constant rain...but in moderation it is awesome for the flora (and hay). :)
