Default Re: I think the folks in Anchorage are glad winters over.

The issue with the record snowfall in Anchortown and surrounding areas is a lack of places to PUT all that snow... when you plow the streets repeatedly, you run in to a very real lack of snow storage locations... here in Valdez, although we have so far received 432 inches of snow, we've got lots of lots (pun intended) to stuff it into... a picture search of Valdez may reveal the fact that although we have been getting some lovely Spring temperatures, our snow piles still exceed the height of the power lines by some 15 - 20 feet.

Hopefully our local rivers will have receded to fishable levels by mid-summer...
