What Anchorage received last night was more like a Termination Dumping, with seven inches reported on the Hillside. I think they’ve been looking at snow up on the peaks since early August anyway, and after last year’s record snowfall they should be comfortable with snow.
Fairbanks has not received any of the White Devil Spawn, which is certainly appreciated, although we have been down to the low to mid twenties in the morning. Where Thursday was a beautiful day to be building along the river, Friday was cold with a bitter wind and far less enjoyable. Snow is in our forecast for tomorrow, but it looks to be only a teaser with temps back up into the fifties next week.
I’d really like to escape September without snow; it’s a mental victory, if nothing else.
