Well, for the second time this winter it is raining. A very sneakily placed low has spread it's warm sector over us, brining extremely mild temps and lots of rain. My house reached 41 degrees yesterday, with the same expected today. And I was so happy about our snowpack yesterday too :'( .Yesterday we hit 38 inches of snow. That is more snow then we've had at any given time over the last 6 years. And now we're gonna lose up to 10 inches of it to this confounded rain lol. Right now it looks like this pattern change will last for at least a few days before cooling down below freezing again. This means more awful sloppy driveways to get stuck in which I'm sure we all enjoy. And this will just intensify the already flooded Kenai River which has been having ice jam problems ever since a remote lake broke its natural dam and started pooring into the river. Anyway, Alaska never used to be this way lol.
We shall see what happens!
