Today was a good day not to be in Fairbanks. This was nowhere near the high temperature for the day which I think was somewhere around +46°F. There were a lot of comments about the coming apocalypse when talking about today's Alaska temperatures. Warmer in Alaska than many areas in the lower-48. Here in Illinois, it was below freezing, but there was never an expectation for warm weather.
It was snowing this morning and the temperature dropped all afternoon. But the traffic didn't seem anywhere near as bad as it was in Los Angeles. Maybe most people around here had figured out that cars slide on ice. The main problem for me is losing my way. Everywhere looks the same to me. Lots of shopping centers that all look alike.
We spent the day shopping for Christmas presents with our grandson plus I picked up some groceries to make dinner. After all of the eating out for the last couple of weeks, it was nice to spend some time in the kitchen again. Nothing new or exciting.
