There are a number of signs that it's "Springtime in Alaska"!
First of all, a link--
The temperature finally broke into the 50's--The 19th of April.
The trees are budding out and getting ready to have leaves!
A little patch of green grass was found next to the sunny side of our apartment!
Again, on the 19th of April, at 10:15 pm. It's still light outside!
Elder Mansfield took his jacket off to play Ping Pong with "Kola" at the Institute! -- Also went and bought a short sleeved white shirt for Summer!
