Springtime in Alaska

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.

One Response to Springtime in Alaska

    Wow! What a difference a day makes. 24hr ago, there was six inches of snow in some parts of Anchorage. Today, the sun is out and bright, the skies are clear and brilliant. Denali (Mt. McKinley) is standing tall and bright more than 100miles to the north, and the mountains are clear and very white. And the chickadees are bouncing in and out of the nest box.
