We have left Nome for a little down time into warmer climate, except it has been consistently 104 the past week... and loving every minute of it. Not much in the way of computer / internet access so it has been fun not being a slave to email and the electronic addiction. My brother and I are competing in the Tempe triathlon tomorrow, should be a blast and we'll see how the heat kills us. Nome has been a dismal 34 - 40 degrees or so I heard through the wunderground grapevine. Will post some pics when I get a chance.
