Here are some pictures from this afternoon and evening. And, yes, that does read "12 inches" on the tape measure. Friday night, my deck didn't have one atom of snow on it. By 9 tonight, it had nearly 12 inches.
Like I said in the earlier post, we expected more snow to extend this winter, despite the 50-degree temperatures we had in Anchorage earlier this week. But this is a bit crazy. Gina is giddy, all ready to pull the skis back out. I'm a little less enthusiastic; I was really enjoying the snow and ice-free biking. But winter in Alaska isn't over just yet.
That's OK. Biking season can wait a few more days to really get started and another day on the cross-country skis won't be such a bad thing.
