So, this is a little late, and is old news for some people.
I got a call last Sunday night from Daniel's mission president's wife. She said he arrived safely. She told me how wonderful he is. (I loved that) Then she told me where he is. I gasped.
It's 120 miles south of the Artic Circle.
It's about 200 miles northeast of the tallest mountain in the Northern Hemisphere.
It has the widest range of temperatures in the world. It can go down to -66 degrees in the winter, and up to 99 degrees in the summer.
It's the second largest city in Alaska.
It's Fairbanks, Alaska!
She said he is thrilled!
I told her he doesn't have very much clothing-it's a little hard to find in the desert Southwest.
She says he'll be fine. He can get everything he needs there.
He says they drive trucks to get around. I'm sure he's loving that.
He says it gets so cold sometimes that tires will freeze and break.
He says people live in giant houses or little shacks the size of our family room with a heated wood stove.
Can you see him there? Way in the back left with his arms raised up?
I can't wait to hear what he says next!
Since I post-dated this-we got some PHOTOS of him from a member early this morning:
It looks like he is not a block of ice yet. I'm so glad he gets to carve a pumpkin this year! Thanks Sis. Wilson for thinking of me!!!
