Fairbanks power outages due to warm temp

Power outages all over Fairbanks today. Trees and powerlines that were covered by ice 2 weeks ago it's now causing power outages with the help of warmer temperature and fresh snow.

Our power went out twice. First one was at 330am for an hour and the second one was at 740am for two hours or so.  We also had power outage at work from 1:20pm for about an hour. Driving home and seeing lights on the street and in homes makes me feel so grateful. Thanks to the crews of Golden Valley Electric for fixing the lines as fast as they can.

Photo Prints at Walmart

I love walmart for quick photo or card prints. An hour pickup option  is awesome. I have a project that I was doing online. When I was changing the size of prints from 4x6, I saw an option of wallet prints. It was a bit expensive but it's the perfect size. So I ordered 26 prints and after I hit "Place my Order" it went to the page where it says 2 Wallet prints. Oh my gosh! Did I just ordered 2x26 prints? That's too many prints. There was no where it says 2 wallet print before I placed my order. I tried to cancel the order as soon I saw it but there was no option to cancel it.  Ugh! What am I gonna do with so many prints. So frustrating!!

Watched the Fifty shades Freed today

I watched the Fifty Shades Freed today with my friends. I love the ending of this movie. It shows how Love can change anything even a heart of a manipulating and controlling man. I've watched all 3 movies; Fifty Shades of Gray, Fifth Shades Darker, and the Fifty Shades Freed. Love them all but I was told the book is a lot better. I probably won't know the difference because I'm likely not going to read the book.

Went to work today, President Trump signed bill

An hour after my alarm went off this morming, I received a text from my supervisor that we have funding and that we are back in business. We opened a little late and driving to work later I get to see the sunrise and it was awesome!

Government Shutdown for the 2nd Time this Year - 2018

It may not last long but it's still a shutdown. A 2nd government shutdown for the year 2018. Senate failed to pass the bill, no budget means I get furloughed. If they don't pass the funding agreement tomorrow morning, I may get 3 day weekend, which I don't mind at all.

What My Little Boy's Fears and Worries

When my little boy was 4 years old, he would come to me crying and telling me "Mama, I don't want you dead" He still do that now and then and he would burst into crying.
Couple weeks ago, he came to me and told me "Mama I don't want you in jail" then he cried. I was shock to why would he think that and at the same time I felt so sad that a little boy worries about being left behind. I told him just pray that nothing bad will happen to mama - not in jail and not dead! The next day during breakfast, his grandma asked him to pray and I heard him pray "I don't want mama go to jail" his grandma was like where did that come from. I guess his fears and worries are getting left behind. He sure does love his mama.

My Hope was Crushed by Fairbanks Temperature

Before I went to bed last night I checked the temperature. I decided to take a screenshot because I was happy to see single digit and above zero degree temp.

However, when I checked the temperature this morning it was -22°F here in Fairbanks. Oh my gosh! My hope of having a warmer day today was crushed. But looking at the bright side -- Oh yeah it was so bright out too.

 I saw this moose on 30th Avenue eating something white.

Dog at Old Navy

The dog at Old Navy store is such a great dog to have. No maintenance and can play dead forever. Alan really likes the dog.


I'm so glad that Fairbanks finally got a break from double digit below temperature today.

Friday night fun with my friends in Fairbanks. We tried to get together once a week at my place and Friday seems to be our favorite day. We eat, we sing, we laugh a lot, and we simply have fun.  So tonight my friends brought in and cook chicken feet and swimming crabs.
Live long and prosper!
