    Went down there and checked it out. Lot less touristy, if that's a word. I'm sure you are enjoying the literal 130 degree difference there from home. Enjoy the rest of the trip, I'm jealous!

    So Monday brought 6-12" depending where in town you were. I went into work at 5AM to plow the lot before we opened and didn't get home until 9pm. But it was a good paying day! Right after the snow on Monday the temps started to drop pretty quickly.

    Let's start with the drive to work at 5am Monday...nice 75 mph road!

    Well we got hit with another round, supposed to be only a few inches but the low stalled out and gave us 16" more or less in other places in town.

    Light fluffy snow caused very low visibility and main multi lane roads down to one lane including all the highways,real mess.

    pics start from this morning, kept snowing all day.

    Hey great pics. But careful, some guys are going through snow withdraw DTs with all the snow we haven't gotten. Watching Buying Alaska right now.

    Turning out to be a decent snow year here in Fairbanks, got 10" over the last 2 days and their calling for 6-12" tonight. The Bronco is holding up well and pushing snow better then I imagined.

    IMG_0964.JPG Some people wait to long before calling. I met my match on this one. No where to push the snow, banke are almost 5 feet high, skinny little driveway, got sideways in the bottoms of this swale, had to lift the blade and power out and up the other side. Got turned around and tried it from the other side, no dice, barly made it out. Had to tell the guy he needed a dozer. Still paid me 250 bucks for trying.

    IMG_0963.JPG Another one, the driveway goes down between the two piles, ugly, but it pays good.

    Well down here in Anchorage we are officially over our average of 70" snowfall at the airport, more at my place and the areas I plow.

    I've had photos stacked up so I'll just start adding from when I last left off.

    Shoveled my roof off this weekend, the front door wasn't shutting right.

    And since we had two very mild warm winters apparently everyone forgot how to drive. Not my photos but all from my local area.

    Well, it looks like the season is over but one never knows until May comes.
    I took the plow off the truck yesterday and I have two of the olds cars out. The snow is melting pretty quick with temps in the mid 40s to mid 50s.

    We did get hit with one last dump of 12" heavy wet stuff on 3/30.

    Does the Olds have a 455 Rocket in it?
    A buddy had one in HS and it was great on road trips, except for feeding it...
