Home sweet home this morning, August 30th.

I think the title of this post means “It’s snowing at my house” in Gwich’in, but I make no promises. We’ve had snow on Nitsii Ddhaa, the big mountain at the head of the valley, since last Saturday, but snow here at just 2,000 feet was a surprise.

It’s early, just August, and I was hoping to pick cranberries for at least another week. I made a great haul – a quart in less than an hour – up at the Junjik this weekend, and I was hoping to put up a gallon for chutney and cranberry bread. I’m almost sure this means the end of the blueberries.

  1. Snow! So exciting. Well, except for the berries part. I made a highbush cranberry juice yesterday but…broke half of the jars on the ride home with an accidental whoopsies (pushed the crate off while loading another package) haha so…hey, snow or mishap, it’s all pretty typically Alaskan. Plan and then…recover. Welcome home.
