Rainy days, it is days like these that truely make me miss Alaska.
Most of the time I really don't miss my familial home, until winter. Then I miss the snow, the quiet, yet bright snowy winter nights beside the wood stove with family.
Days like today bring all of these thoughts to the forefront. Here it is raining and raining, dark and grey. It shocked me so much when we moved to the lower 48 that it is so dark here at night. In Alaska the moon and the stars shine off the snow, and the NothernLights light up the sky. Here it is dark dark dark, grey clouds and heavy forest make the dark nights truely pitch black. It is a wonder that there isn't more SAD down here than in Alaska.
