Snow day -- April 8, 2015

Fresh snow on the Chugach Range.

According to the US National Weather Service Alaska: "Today's snowfall totaling 1.7 inches in Anchorage ranks 5th for winter snowfall this 2014-2015 season. In fact, today's snowfall is more than all the snow from February and March combined."

It was hard to get a photo of it because most of it seemed to melt as soon as it hit the ground. Mid-afternoon the sun came out, and by 5:00, the streets were dry and the grass was brown.

Snow lingering on a railing,

in the tree branches (buds are swelling there),

at the feet of the sprouting bulbs.

In the warmer places, indoors, some flowers --

orchids at UAA in one of the skyways, and

hellebore at Fred Meyers, waiting for nicer weather to go back outside.
