On my way to work this morning the view was so fantastic I had to pull into the Overlook before town. Three other cars also stopped so I did the tourist thing and got my picture taken. (Office Worker, Laura)

The snow has finally arrived.  Talkeetna looks like a winter wonderland! the temperature is dropping so we know it will be here for awhile.  It is certainly a nice change from the snow/freezing rain we had been experiencing.

The AMS staff is in the office to answer any questions and process applications.
