Sunny Snowy Friday Postcard
I didn't make it to Juneau yesterday. The snow began in earnest about the time I was due to fly out. But my daughters' team won their game, and so the Haines Women will defend their Gold Medal tourney title Saturday night! The great good news is that all three Haines teams will be in the championships. The two Haines men's teams won last night, too. The Merchants in the "Mighty B" Bracket, and Klukwan in the C bracket. You can hear them on KINY beginning with the Women at 2:00 tomorrow afternoon.
The snow did make for quite a show on this bright Spring morning-- and so I took a few snapshots on my way home from the pool.
Spring Break rush hour on Main Street.
Harbor dredge at work.
A look at the the Harbor expansion work so far, as they fill in the parking area and make the bulkhead before dredging the tidelands and building the steel wave barrier.
Footprints in the Fort.
Clearing the snow by Alaska Indian Arts.
A view from the winter's snow plow piles at the top of the Fort Seward Parade Ground.
It may look like a bluebird day for the Freeride World Tour competition, but the snow pack is still too unstable and they are once again on hold. The ski trails over in Skagway are flatter, and in great shape for tomorrow's Buckwheat Ski Classic.
