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:
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.
Folks are getting back on their roofs, but this time they’re trying to beat the curve.At least it’s the light, fluffy stuff that comes from a nice cold snow. So we might as well keep it moving before it gets rained on and turns to heavy slop and then ice again.
Time to break out the shovels and get back to it, Cordova! At least until it’s time to go skiing at Mt. Eyak this weekend! 🙂
