But today there's this:
Some parts of northern Alaska are expected to get snow this week [snip]...
Starting Monday, rain is expected to turn into snowfall above 3,000 feet in the northeastern Brooks Range in northern Alaska, the National Weather Service said in a special weather statement.
By Tuesday morning, 5 inches of wet, heavy snow is expected above 4,000 feet and up to 3 inches above 3,000 feet, the weather service said.
I note with some interest that shoveling snow isn't as much fun as it once was, but we're about due for another snowy winter. And if these early predictors are any indication, it could be a long one, too.
It's only August ... right?
