Lagoon Update

Posted by: Steph on April 30th, 2010

Tyge, Echo, and I just returned from a late evening stroll along the Lagoon. Sad to say for David and Gordon, the ice is still resoundingly in. I think it’s safe to say that it’s going to be around for at least 3-4 more days.
Wednesday it was 64 degrees, yesterday was in the 50’s and […]

Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic: Let the Waiting Begin

Posted by: Steph on April 27th, 2010

The Ice Classic entry period closed Sunday April 25th at Midnight. We’ve got 23 entries this year and now we all wait. It was downright sultry this afternoon: 50 degrees and partial sun. I even ran in shorts - I’m sure the glare off my winter white legs sped up the Lagoon melting process.
I took […]

Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic Update

Posted by: Steph on April 22nd, 2010

Judy’s house up on the Hillside received 5 inches of snow this afternoon. Fortunately, here in town, the snow didn’t stick.
What does this mean for the Ice […]

9th Annual Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic!

Tyge and Echo at the Lagoon on Tuesday April 13th
It’s April! We’re deep in the midst of Breakup. Eau de Dog Poop permeates the air. Dust, grit, mud, slush, and cruddy snow are everywhere. Cars are unrecognizable mud bombs.
All of this can mean only one thing! It’s time for the Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic!
It’s time […]

Echo’s Big Weekend

Posted by: Steph on April 14th, 2010

Echo had quite the weekend. After a month of stellar behavior, Echo fell off the wagon. Friday, she snagged and destroyed a full box of kleenex and the contents of a trash can. Saturday she rested - gearing up for Sunday. Sunday she reduced a wooden spoon to splinters, munched on a running shoe insole, […]

Weekend Hanging Out

Posted by: Steph on April 11th, 2010

Mid-April in Anchorage can be sunny and beautiful. But more often, at best, it’s grey and blah. That would describe this weekend. Which in a way is a good thing: it is after all Tax Weekend. It’s a lot easier to stay inside and work on taxes if the weather is cruddy.
Of course, we […]

Snowy April Day and is it Almost Time for…????

Posted by: Steph on April 6th, 2010

Very typical Anchorage April Day - snowing all day. But fortunately, it was wet snow. Nothing stuck and it helps keep the dust down.
But, this brings to mind that it is early April! Almost time for the 9th Annual Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic!. I’ll get the contest up and running this weekend. And not to […]
