Well, I got fired from my new job in Houston today. So it doesn't look like I will be moving there. I was just getting ready to leave when I received an email informing me of my status. I needed to take care of some business here Monday before I left and missed work today. She said I hope it was important business because it cost you your job.
Now I still have stuff in Houston I have to move. And my stuff packed up here in Valdez. I think I will still have my friends bring my big stuff to Wasilla. Store it some place til I figure out where I'm going. I can stay with a friend in Anchorage and rent a storage unit there. It will be easier to get my stuff from Wasilla than Valdez.
I'm dissappointed about getting fired. After the shock wore off I am okay being jobless and almost homeless.

Took these pictures around 3pm today. Nice clear day in Houston hovering around 20 degrees.
Meanwhile, Valdez goes big with 24 " of new snow and goes over a 100" for the season with 116" as of late Wed night. Talked to a friend in Valdez tonight and she said it was still snowing.
Hope they get it all neatly piled up by Saturday...

Its been hectic the last few days as they wanted me to start my new job right away. The weather for traveling back turned really crappy anyway. Valdez only got a foot and a half of snow last night.
I have weekends off so I'm driving back to Valdez Saturday for another load coming bach Sunday. Weather permiting. Good news is some friends are coming up to Wasilla for Christmas with an empty truck as they want to bring a load of good, dry spruce back. So they'll have room for my desk!
Houston was 23 degrees and lightly snowing. Quite pleasant.

My bags are packed and I'm ready to go by first daylight Monday. Watching the current Alaska Road Conditions at http://511.alaska.gov/ and it looks like its good to go to Houston. First trip anyway. Its so much fun to move in the winter.

This girl can sing (reminds me of a young Joan Baez) with a great band behind her.

There are enough politcal blogs out there that I don't need to be writing one. I like to keep this blog light and snowy.
But, I am an almost 30 year Alaskan, and feel I need to speak my piece. The election is over so I am not trying to sway any reader to the left or right.
Everyone knows it doesn't matter whose in or out. Clear Channel owns 80% of the radio stations, McClatchy owns the newspapers, the Japanese own the movies and we own the internet?
Ted Stevens said the internet was a series of tubes. He was right. When you think about it. Legal pot smokers have a way of seeing the big picture more clearly and express simple things profoundly. If you are not stoned or have never been stoned, legally, you wouldn't understand.
Ted Stevens said that HAARP (General Information) was a study of the auroras. He was right. If you think about it. Ask Nikola Tesla.
Happy 85th Bithday to a great senator. Hey, Senator to-be Mark Begich, if laser eye surgery was around when Uncle Ted was senator, he wouldn't have needed glasses all those years. Hope you see the fine print young man.

Buy The Book!
This girl can ride, write and take awesome pics. She puts studs on her bike and in all kinds of weather goes places. I've been following her blog since she lived in Homer. A young photo-journalist from Utah working her way up through the ranks.
Visit Jill Homer's Blog!
Thanks to Alaskan Girl for the heads up.

Every day that a veteran dies our wings get clipped more. Its like we are all on restriction. Police the yard. Get your hands out of your pockets. Forget even one iota of original thought you had. It was tested illegal.
Proud to be among Veterans

Had a bad day yesterday. All the pictures/videos I put on my laptop (which has the new Windows Vista operating system) won't cooperate with me. For instance, the video below. The only way I could upload it was connect to the internet directly from my laptop after numerous attempts to simply burn a CD and upload it to my desktop failed. Is it me or is Vista not compatible with XP was my dillema yesterday. Then my laptop got a corrupt file from the picture program itself so now I'm running a scan disk and I hope that fixes it.
I slept on it and changed my mind about pulling the plug on this blog. I'll figure it out and continue taking pictures. Does anyone else have a problem with Vista?
