Alaska is Chillin’ and More Snow Rope Artwork

A report coming to sunny Florida from Aniak, Alaska is that the temperature there was -55 degrees Fahrenheit. Nice! Aniak is on the Kuskokwim River northeast of Bethel.

Below are some more photos of Alaska’s icy trees near Anchorage, along with more “snow ropes” and a bit of snow art around the shrubs and bushes.

Alaska – Cold and Snowy. More Than Normal?

Below are some photographs depicting some of the cold and snow in the Anchorage area. Last week I received one report that Valdez, Alaska, a coastal town of just over 4,000 people that sits east of Anchorage, currently has 321 inches of snow. Make no mistake about it, that’s a lot of snow. However, according to Valdez websites, the average annual snowfall is about 360 inches. It’s still early in the winter season though.

And, this morning I heard on the news that Nome, Alaska was having difficulty getting heating fuel into the town because of the cold. The report said Alaska was currently experiencing the coldest winter in 40 years. In parts of the winter, Nome’s average daily high is 5.7 degrees.
