OK, Enough is Enough


Even for us hearty Alaskan souls, I think we've had about as much snow as we need for Spring Break! The Seward Highway into Anchorage is closed for a few hours due to an avalanche at Bird Point and DOT will be doing more avalanche mitigation. The Mountain has a delayed opening until 1:00 pm for snow load control and the Spring Break Silvertip School Groups Camp cancelled morning sessions. We can hear the safety crew with the avalanche guns blasting the mountain and can see where Max's Mountain actually had a slide all the way down to the upper parking lot -holy cow! The skies are clearing though and it seems the only one having more fun than first-tracks skiers is Tauzer's buddy, Isis!

Amen to that thought from the Anchorage hillside. Just dug out the driveway...again. I guess it's good exercise if nothing else. Can't wait for the plow to come through (and just got back from the grocery store...madness!). I was thinking this would be great weather for skiing until I read the news about the avalanche. Stay safe.

UNCLE!!!!!!!!
It makes me cringe just to look at it.
Warm the last two days here, but rain is coming.
I would like a month of sun and then I might be ready for some wet.
