Sorry, not Huskies....Alaskan Malamutes

And I know the female loves snow, the male is new and from a local rescue, but I'm sure he will love to head dive into a snow bank.

Talk to your deliver person. I give mine 2 cards when I am gone more than 30 days and up to 6 weeks.

Much beyond that look into a pre-paid priority mail forward service the post office offers that will box your weekly mail and forward it to you at your summer location.

When we go on extended trips we put in a temporary change of address with the post office and have mail forwarded to my son's house. I think they will forward the mail up to one year. When we return the mail delivery resumes at our house.

Note: just because the bills go to your kid's house, don't expect them to be paid

We did that with my parents when we were moving. They have also used our address when moving. The only drawback is it took a couple of years for the mail to get straightened out due to companies pulling the forwarding mail information from the USPS.

Or, just go to www.usps.com and increase your mail holding time for another 30 days and continue doing that in 30 day increments for as long as required.

That's how we do it - works great and better than asking a neighbor.

Forward your land line phone calls also if you have one.

When it got that cold, we were actually camping at Ocean Pines RV, NAS Oceana of all places and it was actually warmer in Virginia Beach than in Jacksonville.....not by much, mind you, but still warmer.

You were lucky, First time ever I seen USAF base closed for 2 days. But I can understand the front gate is on a down slope which was just pure ice. In Florida they do not have snow removal equipment and salt trucks. I just went to see the Blue Angels, but they were smart and where in there California base already. I like to stay at SEA MIST in the Oceana Anx. still part of the base a lot of training there here in Virginia.
