We have some new buildings cropping up in Quin just in time for winter.
The University of Fairbanks is building a Cold Climate Efficiency Home Prototype or something like that over by the new housing. You remember, the new housing built last year? Well it is currently still new because nobody is living in any of them yet. Evidently the Alaskan powers that be (probably right now sitting somewhere, maybe on their cozy flushing toilet with running water in Anchorage) have determined that 'haul and flush or flush and haul' systems which these brand new homes are equipped with are no longer legit. So they won't sign for whatever needs to be signed so people can actually MOVE into the new housing. At least that's what I understood. Anyway we are also getting a new store! And Jon has some pics of it.
And out of the north the cold.
From the breath of God ice is made,
And the expanse of the waters is frozen."
