Elder Johnson's November 21, 2011 E-mail 40 below!!!!???

Elder Johnson and Elder Norris

Hi Mom,
  I'm in a rush. We have a scheduled haircut appointment in 9 minutes. I
 will come back and write something more detailed in a little bit. There's a
 few things I must mention.

   Hopefully, you sent the shirts to my Alaska address and not the Canada
 address. Your package will not get to me before I leave Whitehorse. This
 transfer ends in 4 weeks.

   I am freezing my tail off. It's freaking cold up here. It got to negative
 40 degrees Celsius, which is negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit. That's not
 including the windchill. I need to buy a hat and a face mask. And probably a
 warmer coat--but I'm not sure yet. I'm sure I've got at least 50 bucks in my
 account. That should be fine for the head gear. If I need a coat, I will
 call the office and have them call you and tell you to transfer however much
 money it will cost into my account.

The following are the updated District Duties:

Elder Norris: District Auditor, District Activities Coordinator,
District Womanizer

Elder Duncan ( District Chef, District
Photographer, District HAZMAT Specialist, District Fondeler (They
thought that rang better than District Hugger.)

Elder Bowes ( District Music Producer
(DMP), District Wingman (Includes assisting all of the
duties--especially District Photographer and Activities Coordinator.),
District Comedian

So who is the new person responsible for pictures?

Elder Duncan and Elder Bowes are combining efforts to ensure
consistent and quality pictures. At the end of the transfer, we will
combine all of the pictures in our jump drives. Which, by the way, if
you want me to be able to do that, you must send the jump drive that I
sent you back to me. That's the whole point of sending the jump drive
to you.

How does Elder Norris like Whitehorse?

He says, "I love America." North America, that is.

Are the Whitehorse winters harder than the Anchorage winters?

Yes, very much so. I'm sure you've already gotten my first e-mail.
It's extremely cold.

Will be get to skype for Christmas or only telephone?

I'm not sure. I will find out. Expect just a phone conversation.

Picture please of Elder Norris and you.

Okay, Elder Bowes just took the picture, and he will send it to you.

Bishop Barney says Hi, as well as Bethany, Annie and Jenny (sp?) "Hatch"
(she has a little boy now).

Tell them I said hi. Tell them I've gotten their letters, and I will
respond soon.
