2012 VIDEO: CORDOVA ALASKA; 24 DAYS OF SNOW AND 20 FEET

09 Jan

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!

    I live in Alberta Canada (moved from the States in 2009) and this winter has been unseasonably warm, one good snowfall thus far and rarely under freezing. I feel for that little town and glad to see the National Guard made it in to help dig them out. It is either feast or famine, there is never a happy medium.

    I find it hilarious too, most Canadians complain about the snow, but when there’s not enough they also complain about it. Mother nature can’t win up here in the 54th parellel.
