2012 April Snow Storm !!!

It was snowing yesterday. A heavy wet spring snowstorm - but it ended in early afternoon and was melted by evening. Today I woke up to more snow and it is still coming down at 11:30 AM on Saturday morning April 7.

Looks like we have 8 - 10" so far and it doesn't look like it will be letting up any time soon. It is about 38 degrees outside but the ground is still frozen and was still snow covered - so this new snow is not melting right away. I had a sinking feeling as I opened up the blinds to get a better look outside. This has been one of the harshest winters up here in a long time and it looks like the Anchorage area will easily break their all time winter snowfall record if they continue getting as much snow as we are out here in Wasilla.

I have started tomato, pepper, broccoli, and cabbage indoors, but it looks like garden season is still a ways off for us up here in the great white north...
