Snowy morning in Fairbanks

We got about 6 inches of WET heavy snow overnight.. you know, east coast style.It was beautiful on the side roads..

but nasty on the main roads.
Despite the weather we got to see some airplanes today. These are the research aircraft here for the big project.
This P3 is one of the hurricane hunters! Sadly I could remember tracking every single one of the hurricanes.. since.. uhh.. 1996? They have stickers on the P3 showing which storms this plane flew into.
We got firsthand tours of the research aircraft.
And look who was on board! It's Dave and Jing, laser beam extraordinares!The snow flew away and the skies cleared up to a nice breezy day...
