A couple days ago I got up & saw that the ground was white with about 1"-2" of very wet snow, which was all gone by noon. Since the skies finally broke today, I thought I'd take a drive down the road from where I live & snap a couple photos of the fresh snow we got in the last 2 days,.. each time it gets lower & lower....

Nice view you got there.
My parents went to alaska two years ago but I was unable to go with, maybe sometime in the future I can go and spend a while there.

Thanks for the pictures. I have been lucky enough to get to your part of the world a couple of times over the years. These pictures remind me that it has been to long and I should schedule a trip back for next year. Thanks again :salute:
