Rain and more rain!
It is raining like crazy today! There was a place by Governor Palin's Gov Mansion which had 4 feet of water on the road. Seems the snow buildup/piles were not allowing the water to go downhill, so it made a big pool at the bottom of a hill. That was yesterday morning but they have since removed the snow and it is drained. Palin should be coming into town any day now - session starts soon. It was 35 degrees and many people are talking about the warmth and glad that we are back to warmer. Personally, I liked 25 degrees and powder snow as long as I do not have to shovel multiple times during the day.
The pictures are of a couple of the biggest icicles. They are like 15 feet long - BIG!
they are long gone by now though.
SCARY! I just looked on the weather map for the weather for the rest of the week. Wed and Thurs - rain and 40 degrees - normal. THURS EVE AND FRIDAY - THEY HAD A RAIN CLOUD 3 TIMES BIGGER SHOWING A DOWNPOUR! Yikes - this constant rain we have had is just a small taste of what is to come? Yikes!
