Have you guys seen what is going on up in Alaska right now? They are absolutely getting buried (and no, that's not normal)

One thing about the Daily Mail, they always have incredible photos

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2085892/Record-snowfall-Anchorage-Alaskan-communities-run-shovels-following-27ft-snowfall.html

About 150 miles to the southeast, the Prince William Sound community of Cordova, which has already been buried under 172 inches of snow since November, could get another 7 inches today.

The USCGC Healy is a 420-foot icebreaker and the namesake of the Healy class of cutters. Relatively new by CG standards (about 15 years old), it can definitely break some ice.

Only had a dusting. Can't say I'm disappointed because that is what I expected.

I hate these 2-3 inches snows. because it makes driving worse than in 6-8-10 inches. When it snows that much the idiots stay off the roads. when its only 1-3 the idiots try and go out.

The ice is the only thing that scares me in forecasts like these. I love the snow, but it's not so much fun when the power goes out

Knock on wood I haven't lost power to ice except maybe once(and that was a few years ago from what I remember).
