While Chicagoan’s complain about the cold and snow this time of year, we may want to count our blessings. Because a small town in Alaska has seen 24 straight days of snow and is buried in 20 feet of the white stuff.
Cordova, Alaska has 2200 hundred residents, who are now probably wishing they headed to Florida for the winter. The snow began falling on December 17, 2011 and shows no sign of slowing down. Lucky for them, the National Guard arrived to help with the clean-up!
A local resident even began her own snow update video channel on Youtube. It is so deep, all they can do is hope for sunshine and a miracle. Can you imagine the flooding when it thaws?
Makes Chicago feel like a tropical island right about now!
