The picture here is a snapshot I took of an incredibly beautiful sunset near my house last week.
It’s the second month of the new year already! Will we see the groundhog’s shadow? You can actually watch the live broadcast at groundhog.org tomorrow. What’s your prediction?
My son Teko played in a hockey tournament last weekend in Kenai. Their first game was in an unheated arena and the temperature was -21f. I had some friends laugh at me at first when I showed up with my polar-explorer parka on. They weren’t laughing by the third period when they were shivering on the metal bleachers and I was toasty warm! It was so cold that when the players came off the ice for a shift change, they immediately went into a heated trailer to thaw out.
Teko’s team didn’t win the tourney, but the kids had a great time anyway. My son Kier is off on another five hour road trip to Homer for his tournament tomorrow.
We live in a huge state and if you’re involved in sports, you’re going to spend a lot of time on the road. Sarah, Heather, Molly, and I all spent countless hours on buses, boats, and planes traveling around Alaska during our playing days. Our parents sacrificed so much… now that I have my own kids, I can see why it was worth it.
