Winter Knocks

After near record rainfall for an October storm on Sunday and Monday, the skies cleared, the northern lights filled the sky and the temps dropped down to a very hard freeze last night. It was sunny and slightly above freezing today, so I took the Bug to the jobsite for one last seasonal run. I topped off the tank on the way home, adding some SeaFoam, then took off the roof rack and pulled over the car cover. I’m guessing that Bug Season is over for the year with snow on the agenda for this weekend.

The aurora gave a phenomenal show last night, absolutely covering the sky above Fairbanks. We’re down to a Level 3 tonight on the Aurora Forecast Scale.
