Rainbows over Soldotna as 2004 came to a close.
Some have gone as far as to describe the weather of 2004 as schizophrenic or more yo-yo like than ever. Mother Nature certainly has provided a myriad of Kodak moments over the last few months with the weather going from providing double rainbows over Soldotna, to sub-zero temperatures and hoar frost spectacles along the Kenai River, not to mention heavy snow fall and ice conditions all in the same few weeks. Travelers whether by land, sea or air have seen flights and trips delayed, arriving in Fairbanks rather than Anchorage due to everything from high winds, to heavy fog and icing conditions. Even so compared to other places on the globe or in the lower 48, the Kenai Peninsula has proven once again that those of us fortunate enough to live in Alaska have a great deal to be thankful for.
