Snow Day!

Friday, April 26, we had a huge snow storm! The weather had been so nice - warm, the snow was almost gone, and in a matter of 12 hours we had 16 inches of snow on our back porch. I'm not kidding. I got stuck in the parking lot at work...

But Guinness was really not happy about it. Here he is trying to come back in after going out - but we stopped him at the door. He went straight in to the tub to melt all the snow balls off...

Can't you just hear him, "please let me in guys..."

Whittier - Buckner Building

Last weekend Sara and I took the new Suby down to Whittier to photograph the old Buckner Building Army barracks. We had a great time exploring the old building - it was a little icy getting in there, as the snow berms were over our heads! But once we got in, the views were amazing!

10 random facts

Ok, Bridgette and Bern both tasked me with this, so here it is... 10 random facts about Dori:

1. I love scones. Any flavor, I love them all. I make them, buy them, gift them... They're the best invention with a cup of tea ever.

2. Building on number 1, I love tea. Forget the coffee. Give me a strong cup of black tea any day. No sugar, just a little half & half. And maybe a good scone...

3. I can't buy things that aren't on sale. I don't know what the problem is. If I find something I want, and it's not on sale, I go to ebay.

4. I hate talking on the phone. I won't even order a pizza on the phone. I make Chris do it. Someone told me once that she thought the reason I hated it was because I sound like a 10 year old on the phone. Awesome...

5. I'm terrified of needles. Well, any thing that involves blood, needles, etc. I pass out everytime I have to get a shot, even a TB test. Needless to say, I don't have any piercings or tattoos.

6. I love dogs. I think they're awesome. The fluffier the better - but I am allergic, so I have to wash my hands alot when I play with them...

7. I'm not very good at finishing things. I get really excited about new ideas and projects, and get about 1/2 way through things before I get distracted by the next cool new idea... My house if full of unfinished "great ideas". Chris just rolls his eyes when he finds out I'm going to JoAnn's.

8. I love Brittish period books (and movies made from the books). Jane Austen, Dickens, any of the Brontes, etc. I have to sneak them onto the netflix queue...

9. I would like to be a detective. I am always watching TRU (used to be Court) TV - for "the Real Detectives" and shows where they use forensics to catch criminals. Sometimes when I see fishy behavior I will try to memorize facts about the "scene" in case I need to testify later. I know, I'm a dork... But I'm also totally phobic of real blood, so I don't think it would have worked out.

10. I'm all out of random facts... So 9 will have to do!

Spencer Glacier

We spent Saturday afternoon grilling out at Spencer Glacier, just south of Portage. We rode up with Joe and Dellany, and Cory and his wife Sara. We had perfect weather - and a great time just relaxing in the Alaskan outdoors...

The glacier was incredibly blue. Lots of glaciers just look blue from a distance, but up close, this cave was like walking in to giant saphires! It was amazing...

Spring Riding

Chris went riding yesterday and had this cool shot that he did a little photoshop work too. It looks great, so I thought I'd share ;)
