(BTW, the previous post with its all-caps is a simple cut-and-paste; it isn't meant to be a howl.

But here is a bit more Alaskan weather. If they think Cordova has it bad, take a look at Valdez:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Another Prince William Sound community could argue it's been hit even harder with snow than Cordova this winter.

Valdez normally has 149.7 inches of snow by this time of the year. This year, the National Weather Service says Valdez has had 318.4 inches of snow-- or 168.7 inches more than usual.

Valdez resident Kathryn Hawkins says the scary part is it's only mid-January.

There's three more months of snow to be had in Valdez, and she has no idea where it's going to go.

If there's a plus side to all this snow, her 12-year-old son Trevor has found it

There's so much snow, it up to the eaves of their house, and he's spending a lot of his free time sliding off the roof into their yard.
