Well, this is embarrassing. I posted Natalie, #297 a couple of weeks ago. I forgot to follow up with her significant other. Worse, I have lost (misplaced?) my Moleskine journal. I remember this fellow, but I forget his name. Bummer.
What's-his-name lives in Fairbanks, AK, but is originally from Oklahoma. The winters there can be severe, but NOTHING like Alaska. But the weather has turned upside-down this year. I said that I thought that Alaska was relatively warm this winter. He said, “Oh yeah, until two weeks ago. Then it REALLY got cold.” What's-his-name said that Natalie is used to it – not him.
