If you look real close, you can see them receding;
this is most likely due to global warming.
So while it's not really too interesting, it's very PC.

PC it is then.

Not too PC is 900 years of weather
patterns recorded by French vintners
showing several identical periods of
"global warming". I believe those periods
were due to hydrocarbons emitted from belching
cows or volcanoes before a single combustion
engine ever turned over. But that's just the
word on the street.

We didnt sit there the whole day you silly guy. Maybe a couple hours. It is fun to watch and listen to the calve. Its just beautiful scenery. While sitting in there we saw seals, sea lions and bear up on the hillside.

Greyson,

Well I knew with all the ice in Minnesota, it couldn't be that absorbing. I have been watching travel shows on Alaska and have convinced myself to plan a cruise up there. It is such a beautiful part of the world.

Cold enough for you? -15 below here, no windchill! It actually doesn't feel too bad because there just isn't much wind.

Stay warm!

Ken

This weather is just nuts for sure. I have friend in California whining that is in the 20s sometimes at night. Oh boo hoo. You will love the Alaska trip, you will not be disappointed. If you want some suggestions on excursions I can give you some. If you take the trip from Vancouver into Seward, I have a cousin who owns a B&B up there and I can give you the info. The best thing to do is take the cruise, rent a car and then do some sight-seeing between Seward and Anchorage. You will love it up there. We have about 3" of snow right now and it has finally really slowed down. Im so ready for spring.

Don't be too hard on your California friend; most of us whine when it dips below 40--myself included!

If he would quit wishing more snow on us, I wouldnt even pick on him. Im so sick of winter. Im ready for spring thats for sure. We have had 2 weeks below zero this year and enuogh is enough. It was -15 here one day, with a wind chill of -40 and when I called my cousin in Anchorage, Alaska, it was almost 60. Where is the fair in that?

My wife spent her teens in Minneapolis (she is from Latvia) before coming west and for 40 years lamented the "lovely change in seasons there"; that is, until she spent two months there last winter caring for her mother. Now I don't hear anymore about visiting in the winter.
