It's a Marshmellow World

"A winter storm swept into Southcentral Alaska and buried Valdez in 21 inches of snow over the past 24 hours.

That’s bad, even by snowy Valdez standards, said Tabatha Bolduc, who works as a senior office assistant for the city’s parks and recreation department and civic center.

“I’ve never seen snow like this here, actually...It was like 5 or 6 inches an hour,” she said.

Valdez could see another 6 to 12 inches by midnight tonight, said Scott McKim, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service." (From Anchorage Daily News)

"It's about time!" said the FishTaxi.

Update~Thompson Pass is closed due to avalanche. Valdez Harbor - all boats need shoveling even if you shoveled them last night. One boat, the Double Trouble, has sunk and it was shoveled last night.

Were hoping for just a few inches of snow here. We thought that by moving to Idaho we would get lots of snow, but it doesnt snow much at all in the Boise Valley, Boo Hoo!

Its been like "The Cat in the Hat" (minus the pink snow) around here.

I wondered if Boise was getting any snow. SORRY!
