Ok, that's not really the case.
First and foremost, it snowed enough to get out on the skinnies not once, but twice! Golf course skiing (yes there are a few here) to protect the bases of the skis, but still awesome. The local trails are supposedly "rolled out and skiing well." Not sure about that with only 3-4inches on the ground, but if the weekend sun doesn't melt too much off and the snows return, I could be skiing in the woods soon enough.
More importantly, I had an article go national on the wire. I don't know if it's been picked up by anyone but I'm really proud of it. I took a few weeks to put together a piece on Cook Inlet Beluga's. Take a look:
