Each morning I walk to the end of my driveway and collect the morning paper while coffee brews in the kitchen. Today, May 16th, I dodged snowflakes. Yep, it’s 35 degrees F and snowing right now at my house in South Anchorage.
Two posts ago I complained that global warming had left Alaska, at least for April. Well May is cold too. Really cold. There’s still some winter snow in my yard and our normal summer planting weekend is only a bit over a week away.
The weather man is predicting more snow and a low of 27 on Saturday. I’ve lived in Alaska since 1972 and this is by far the coldest spring I have ever seen. No wonder I’m a global warming skeptic.
