Powder Pugs

Nearly 8 inches of snow fell in Anchorage on Saturday. And we weren't alone. Friends around the country were posting Facebook updates mentioning snow. News sites were full of stories about snow in the southern states, and a storm bearing down on New York City.

The funny thing is, most of the comments were in the form of complaints, and the news stories were somewhat alarmist. It was like snow is a bad thing. And that ain't necessarily so.

I guess we're just lucky in Alaska. The snow was dry, fluffy powder—perfect for fat tires. And then the sun came out.

So, if you're reading viewing these photos while stranded in an airport, or after a hellish drive home from work on a road littered with fender-benders ... well, sorry.

Gotta get me one of those fat tire rigs. There's a guy here in the Twin Cities that put a Pugsley fork on his Karate Monkey, calls it his Pug Monkey and says it's the next best thing. Of course my Karate Monkey won't stop talking about it...

"Not really" I loved the small print closeout. Let the gas guzzlers suffer in their sardine cans.
