Oh My Glory!!!!!

Standard

I am back from the slope, and started looking at the weather to plan my weekend of camping, Geocaching, and driving around the Kenai. The report is … Snow

The weather report actually jumped all over the misery. Rather than cry over my typing to you — here is a cut and paste:
WITH PAVED SURFACES TAKING THE LONGEST TO COOL DOWN ENOUGH FOR SNOW TO STICK. THERE ARE ONLY TWO INSTANCES IN THE RECORD BOOKS WHERE MEASURABLE SNOWFALL WAS RECORDED IN ANCHORAGE (AT THE OFFICIAL CLIMATE STATION) DURING THE 2ND HALF OF MAY. THESE OCCURRED ON MAY 17 1989 AND MAY 22 1964. BOTH OF THESE STORMS DEPOSITED 0.2 INCHES OF SNOWFALL. THE UPCOMING STORM HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF PRODUCING THE LARGEST SNOWFALL IN THE 2ND HALF OF MAY SINCE RECORDS BEGAN IN 1917. ADDITIONALLY

IF ANY MEASURABLE SNOWFALL AT ALL OCCURS THIS WEEKEND IT WOULD MAKE THE 2012-2013 SNOW SEASON THE LONGEST SINCE RECORDS BEGAN. THE SNOW SEASON IS DEFINED AS THE NUMBER OF DAYS BETWEEN THE FIRST AND LAST MEASURABLE SNOWFALLS OF THE SEASON. THE CURRENT RECORD IS HELD BY THE 1981-1982 SNOW SEASON WHERE 230 DAYS ELAPSED BETWEEN THE FIRST AND LAST SNOWFALL. AS MENTIONED EARLIER THERE IS STILL QUITE A BIT OF UNCERTAINTY WITH THE DETAILS OF THE APPROACHING STORM. OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS SHOULD PREPARE FOR THE LATE SEASON COLD AND SNOW BEFORE HEADING OUT.

Seriously???
Seriously???

I really hope summer will fall on a Saturday this year.
