Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I woke up this morning to a lot of snow out there. The wind was almost howling and the snow was heavy. We ended up with just five or six inches but it was beautiful.
This whole next week they're forecasting low temperatures and more snow. By the end of the week our ground should be well frozen. I hope so.
Southeastern Alaska doesn't get nearly as much wintry weather as the rest of Alaska- our all time low temperature at -22F (our highest was 90 degrees), because, although we are fairly far north, we are right on the coast. which tends to keep us pretty stable.
For those who don't know, Juneau, the capital of Alaska is about 45 miles long- and narrow. Very narrow. We follow the coastline. I like to tell people that we have about 200 miles of paved roads, if you include driveways.
