The last time I was in AK. in the early 80's there wasn't enough snow!
Alack of snow allowed the ground to freeze deeper than usual, freezing the water and sewer pipes to homes.It was a real problem.
I suppose too much is better than not enough.

This is the way it used to be. It isn't too much. Climate patterns do change and normally on their own. They ebb and flow on mini cycles and we are just seeing it swing back to the way it was when I was a kid. Nothing new. We are just alive long enough to witness one extreme to the other. It's called nature. I'm not saying that man does not have an impact however, it's not as much as one would think. Nature is all powerful. It will do what it wants, when it wants. There is nothing we can do to change it. We can change our immediate environment to provide better water and air to breathe and stop polluting so much by recycling but there is nothing we can do to change the natural course of things. You just might as well sit back and take what's coming because when nature and the universe decide to do something, the human race will be but a gnat in a world of giants that will have no say in what goes on. It's only human nature that we try to control everything around us. Sad truth is, this fight has already been decided and won and we are not the victor. Take it. Live your life to the fullest. Love and raise your children and provide the best you can and do what is right for your fellow man. The forces we are dealing with are much more powerful and misunderstood than man thinks. We speculate as to what is the answer for this or that but it is only that, speculation. Just do what you can to live a good life before it comes crashing down. We may not see it in our lifetime however, I'm not taking any chances. I'm going to be happy and not worry about what's coming because when it does, there will be nothing that can be done once it starts. Have a good day.

too much snow? That is bad news. Because I sell a lot of beautiful items on internet, if snow, shipment will delay.
If you are worried about that, then you know nothing about the resiliency of this state and it's people. It would take a lot of snow to shut down anything around here.
