Snow for the Iditarod!

By  | 

When I landed in Anchorage last night, it didn’t look anything like I had expected. Yes I had heard about the record low snowfall. DC got more in one storm than Anchorage had all winter. But I wasn’t prepared for there to be no snow. None. Everything brown and dry.

Now the stories of snow being brought in on 7 rail cars on Thursday made a lot more sense. And then right before we headed out to take in the sights of downtown Anchorage, the snow began to fall — big feathery flakes.

Now 3 inches isn’t really enough to fix the snow problem, but every little bit helps and at least it looks a little more authentic. 🙂
