This page begins with the final Ice Sculpture shots at the Ice Park.  We visited for the final time on March 23rd and the ice sculptures were looking quite sad.  It was a record breaking month in Fairbanks - for warm temperatures; the first 3 weeks of March were 14° F above normal, so the sculptures started decaying quite rapidly.  After the ice sculpture photos there are three shots comparing our front yard on April 30, 2017, April 30, 2018, and March 29, 2019. The final rows show some of this month's Kazuya's Baked Delights Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Begin March 9th and 23rd
  The three photos in this row show the 'Cornucopia of the Sea' sculpture. You may remember that this is the one which was carved by our friends from Anchorage. On this date it still looks wonderful.

  Here are two zoomed-in shots of 'Cornucopia of the Sea' which concentrate on the huge seashell and the bubbles inside of the ice. This intrigued us, those bubbles.

  The first shot in this row was shot on March 9th and the second shot was taken on Match 23, the right-hand section has now fallen down. Most everything in the park was so sad looking on this date that we are not showing any additional shots from March 23.

  Here is 'Perspective is the Key', one which we also showed you last month. At this time the management of the park had placed lights in different areas and it was possible to catch the heart in the ice as it glowed red.

End March 9th & 23rd, Begin "The Thaw"
  These three shots show photos taken on April 30, 2017, April 30, 2018 and March 29, 2019. My heavens, we have less snow remaining this year on March 29th than we had on April 30 the past two years, we are a month early this year, with a record warm month of March. What's going on with the weather? For anybody who does not believe that we are undergoing climate change, well, I beg to differ.
