Here are three ways to know you no longer live in Texas, but Alaska:
It’s May 10th at 6:20 am. You take your dogs outside to do their business and get the newspaper and
1. It is fully light outside.
2. There are snow flurries falling from the sky.
3. Your labrador retriever frightens off a moose.
One of these days these details will no longer shock me, but right now, five months in to our adventure, they still do.
