The Alaska Nanooks hosted the now #1 team in the nation, the Maimi (OHIO) Redhawks, in 44 below zero Fairbanks this weekend.
Friday nights game story and stats:
Saturday nights story and stats:
What was cool about the games this weekend was that my brother (Jimmy's Pirate Pub) braved the cold and ventured north from Boise for an Alaska Nanook home hockey game. This is our nephew Wylie Rogers senior year so the last year to see him play as a Nanook. Jimmy has been having lots of fun in Fairbanks. They went to Chena Hot Springs and he's going ice fishing Monday. Look for cool pictures on his blog.

Another 8 inches of snow fell on Valdez today. When it did stop snowing high winds came up and started blowing snow all around. So much that the evening plane did not fly. Forcast is for high winds til Friday.
While the weather outside was freezing tonight I was inside the pool lap swimming for an hour. As long as a Nanook Hockey game doesn't fall at the same time lap swim is, I'll be at the pool. The next two weekends they'll be playing on home ice in Fairbanks starting at 7:05 Alaska time. Lap swim is 5:30-6:30pm so I'm home in time for the pregame show. Yeah!

Valdezeans woke up to a fresh snowfall of 14.1 inches this morning. It seemed more like two feet to me. I checked the Daily Climate Summary - Valdez and the National Weather Service says 14.1 inches today. Month to date - 42.8 inches. Since Dec 1 - 81.2 inches. Since July 1 - 125.0 inches and the snow depth is 40 inches. Last year at this time the snow depth was 49 inches.
This is the view today from the ferry dock. You can barely see the lights of Alyeska Pipeline Terminal. Valdez Bay is the northern most ice free port chosen for this reason as the terminus of the Trans-Alaska pipeline.

I was hoping the Dallas Cowboys would lose against the New York Giants today. My Green Bay Packers don't like going to Dallas. Bret Farve is 0-6 there and now we don't have to go. The Giants visit Grean Bay next Sunday. Football as it was meant to played. In the snow!

Busy weekend with Nanook Hockey Fri and Sat night. My Alaska Nanooks were in Columbus, Ohio playing the Buckeyes again, as clustermates, in the CCHA. We won Friday night 4-2, with goalie Wylie Rogers, generating an awesome assist earning him the #1 Star of the game. Saturday night all went south with the Buckeyes winning 5-2 with one empty net goal.

Started the new year cooking up a Prince William Sound Rockfish fillet. Along with colorful red radishes fried together with green onions, butter and seafood seasoning. Cooked radishes are good crunchies and compliment this oil rich fish dish. Invented by me and aptly named Rockin' Snap Fish and the Radishes.
