Because in Alaska : Part 2

I thought I would do a second installment of Because in Alaska today.  Sometimes I get caught up in the day to day and almost forget we're in Alaska. Then I remember; because in Alaska:

  • It's perfectly normal to see moose hanging at the local McDonald's.

When you're a Texan in Alaska, it's also normal to pull in to get a closer look. And to be giddy with excitement.  Moose obsession is a real thing.

  • Date night is up close seats to the hockey game

You'll need to wear an outer layer with your team gear because it's really cold (like 4 degrees cold.)

  • You'll need a vehicle with four wheel drive.  
Nathanial is a truck guy once more. Car shopping in the single digits is an interesting experience. Especially when they have to de-ice the vehicle before a test drive.
  • An ice sculpture competition happens in the middle of downtown. 

The sculptors have three days to turn giant chunks of ice into masterpieces.

An Alaskan tool box.

  • Even the mailbox is frozen.
