It’s the Monday morning after the first snowstorm of this year, and although it waited until the end of January, Winter Storm Jonas made up for the lateness of the snows arrival this season. There was a blizzard warning where I live in Norwalk, Connecticut for almost 24 hours and we ended up getting about a foot of snow. Now the sun is shining and the roads are mostly clear, but I am still dreading the moment that I have to leave the comfort of my home.
So then why, while I sip my coffee this morning, am I thinking about Alaska? Am I crazy? Perhaps, but that would be for several other reasons. No, I’m thinking about Alaska because anyone considering going to Alaska this summer, especially on a cruise, should be thinking about it now, actually should have already been thinking about it for months.
