Christmas in Nome

Merry Christmas!

On Christmas day in Nome we will have 3 hrs 56 min of daylight when the sun rises at noon. It's easy to say we will be up before dawn. Our holiday tree consists of a willow as is common in Nome with gifts from many family members. We will take a group shot tomorrow so you can see your gift if you look closely-- kind of like where's waldo.

The only downside today was getting up a 5:30am to go swimming only to discover the pool was closed on Christmas eve. The upside was I managed to get a nice evening "ride". More like a 5 mile plow through not quite set up snow. It's actually more of the same, seems like it is hardly riding conditions after the most recent snow storm. I should be out boarding or something more fun than trying to run through deep snow.
