    Winter solstice officially occurs @ 8:30 PM today in Anchorage. Our daylight today will be a grand total of 5h 28m which is a loss of 09s over yesterday.

    What are you doing today to celebrate the coming riding season? :ricky

    Thank You! 9 seconds eh? I thought it was a little darker a little longer! I'll be going to work....but then maybe I'll change out my front inner tube. The prior owner left some slime stuff in it and it makes it hard to adjust tire pressure. The coming riding season is on snowmachines. I just finished their pre-season maintenance, now I've got to get out and ride. Have a great day everyone, and Happy Holidays.

    In Fairbanks we get a whole 3 hrs 41 Minutes and 34 Seconds of daylight. It could be worse, way up north they don't get to see the sun for another 32 Days.

    Worked at Pt. Barrow,never lost anything to go back looking for.
