It would make a great snow cave.
This week was a week of crazy weather. Last Sunday night it snowed and snowed. By morning, there was about 16 inches of snow in the parking lot to plow through to get inside. Then, to top it off, the wind started to blow. Many people here couldn't remember when Fairbanks had had such a big snowstorm. Then, they couldn't remember it ever blowing like it did or maybe it was 11 years ago or longer. Because the snow is powder, the wind creates a "white out" condition. You can't see very far in front of you. If that wasn't enough, it did a repeat performance on Thursday night but not quite as much snow. Tuesday when we arrived, the doors were frozen shut. Luckily we had a key to the back door and the wind had blown all the snow away from that door. The doors froze again on Friday. Alaska is always interesting.
It's great to be able to study and prepare lessons. We are always learning and enjoying our classes. The teacher always learns more than the student. Another couple in the branch announced their engagement and requested a temple preparation class, so we will be adding a class for them and anyone else that wants to come.
