Spring is near

April 18th, 2012 · Comments Off

The past couple of weeks, I have spent a lot of time out in the Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed monitoring the snow ablation. The days have been amazing and the snow is (finally) starting to disappear. I can tell spring is near as I have my first blood stained page in my field book (from […]

Field work has begun!

April 12th, 2012 · Comments Off

The weather is finally starting to turn a bit and the snow is slowly starting to melt. The past couple weeks, I have been out measuring the snow ablation (melt) at our research sites. Being outside alone, away from my computer, soaking up the sun has been amazingly good for me and great for my […]

Some things never get old, no matter how many times experienced. This is what I came home to last night.

Can’t escape

February 3rd, 2012 · Comments Off

I thought my last post would be the last weather related post for a while, but I guess this will not be the case. I thought all was good after escaping Fairbanks and it’s 5th coldest January on record. However, last night, a major snow storm hit Boulder, snowing about 10 inches over night.

January 31st, 2012 · Comments Off

This video was sent to me last night. Thought it was pretty cool. I’m getting tired of talking about the weather (especially since I am not experiencing it right now), so this will be my last post about it for a while.

I managed to escape the Fairbanks cold Saturday night. The airport temperature was -49F when we left. The icefog in town has been horrible – nearly impossible to see. The picture above (not a great picture) was taken on the way to the airport. The icefog was so thick, you can barely see the car […]

Ill-timed escape

January 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

This morning I woke up to -45C (-49F). Compounding my cold is the fact my boiler has been turned off until the repairs are finished this afternoon (need to recharge the lines in my radiant floor heat system) and my propane is in a non-gaseous state. So I don’t have any hot water (without microwaving […]

Winter time Bob

January 24th, 2012 · Comments Off

The constant cold has started to push my tolerance for being trapped indoors – definitely going a bit stir crazy. So last night, I decided I needed to get out and went to the indoor Fairbanks Ultimate Frisbee practice. It has been a while (about 1.5 years) since I have played. Showing up was good. […]
