Zero to 20″ in 24 Hours

By , March 9, 2012

It has snowed a bit.

Wednesday afternoon, we had no snow left in the dooryard. Then it started snowing.

March snowfall

I took this photo yesterday evening, 24 hours after the snow started falling (Photo: Mark Zeiger).

By the same time Thursday, we’d received 20 inches, and the snow continued falling. It turned to rain overnight, so now big, wet rafts of snow are crashing down on the roof.

I wouldn’t mind this so much if we weren’t missing the incredible aurora borealis display that’s supposed to be going on overhead for the next day or so.

March in Alaska. Gotta love it, ’cause we can’t change it.

    Like our friend Mike McConnell calls February – March.

    Heh. I remember that term, but I thought the first letter was an abbreviated adjective . . . .
