Slack Tide: 49 meditations on a sunny Alaska summer

1. Last night Juneau experienced 18 hours, 13 minutes and 32 seconds of daylight. My wife and I spent the other 5 hours, 46 minutes and 28 seconds trying to put the kids to sleep - until sunrise, when they woke up for good.

Meditations on shoveling snow

To call the activity I engage in from mid-November through mid-April "shoveling snow" is a vast understatement, like calling whatever handheld electronic device you're always futzing around with a "phone." Or the stuff that collects at the bottom of a porto-john "honey." Or Sarah Palin "opportunistic." By the way, that's a real "honey" of a memoir she wrote, huh?

Meditations on splitting wood

In Juneau, there are two things you can never have enough of: non-cotton clothing and dry firewood. Okay, maybe bungie cords. And snow shovels. Oh, and ranch dressing - that stuff goes with everything.

Meditations on the Vancouver Olympic Games

This past weekend, the world took a break from war, natural disaster and that whole Conan-Leno thing, and shifted its gaze toward Vancouver. There, in snow that looks even worse than our own, the world's elite winter athletes have gathered to see which country's chemists can concoct the least-detectable performance-enhancing drugs.
