That tricky sunshine. We get 4 days of it and start thinking we won’t have to get the shovels out again til next winter. It’s silly, really. It’s only January, and February & March are our snowiest months here in Cordova. So we should have known better. But you can always dream… until you see this. Here’s a snapshot of the weather report from weather.com today:
Yep, think there might be a tad more snow in our future!
Eight of the next 10 days call for snow, with one day of rain in there just to mix it up. I’m especially looking forward to next Saturday when we’re supposed to get SNOW at 35 degree temps! That’s like margarita snow.
Last night we got a foot of light, fluffy snow. Yes, waking up to 12 new inches of snow used to be a shock to me. Now, I just sigh, put on my Otter skin topped Xtratuf boots and tromp through the tunnels of white.
Fur-topped Xtratufs made by Cordova's own Gloria Cunningham!
I just moved here from a ski town in Colorado. Have I mentioned that? Well, I guess I’m a snow thief then because I seem to have taken it all with me when I left there last year. Say what you will: I may be a thief, but I’m no hog! They can send a giant cooler up here and haul as much as they want to back to Steamboat.

The season started here with about 2 feet of fresh powder on Thanksgiving. New Year’s weekend 2012 was also pretty epic (to employ Cordova’s most overused term of the year). Check out these great videos by John Giardina.
I’ve always known that Cordova was an awesome place with some pretty unique people, but recently I’ve been addicted to www.Youtube.com, and came across these great videos that prove it. Here are my Top Ten Must-See Videos of Cordova, Alaska. Hope you enjoy!
If you’re like me, you just got a little bit more excited about winter in Cordova. Points North Heli are the folks to see for adventure like this. Either that, or hike it yourself like my friends Rob and Lauren did.
