It snowed here last night! Nearly half inch on the ground at our house. 0.3 inches at the airport. It is highly unusual to have snow this late in the year. Last year, we set a snowfall record for Anchorage; this year, we have now set a record for the longest snow year. Farmers Markets opening today and gardeners are chomping to get out and plant. When we came to Alaska, the official “safe planting” day was May 30. In recent years, the plant date has been creeping earlier in the year… until this year.
