Default Meanwhile....



Snow in Alaska doesn't usually make big headlines, but even The Last Frontier has extremes.

Cordova, an isolated coastal town of about 2,000 people about 150 miles east of Anchorage, appears to be one of the hardest-hit locales, with the state National Guard reporting that it was sending Guardsmen and resources Monday after weeks of record snowfall left the city buried under 18 feet of the white stuff.

I think that the resorts should send air conditioned semi-trucks up and bring it back to the mountains for the use of us. Not the 3 people that actually live in Alaska.
