Record Snowfall in Alaska

Juneau’s snowfall record for April 17 was buried under more than a half-foot of snow Thursday.

The National Weather Service recorded 7.5 inches of snow Thursday at its Juneau International Airport weather station. The record had been only 1.1 inches, received on April 17 in 1948.

The storm that started Wednesday night dropped a total of 10.5 inches at the airport, 12.5 inches at the service’s Juneau office on Mendenhall Loop Road, and 9 inches downtown.

Early Thursday morning, 10 inches of new snow was reported at the base of Eaglecrest Ski Area, which is closed for the season.

Juneau has seen double the average amount of precipitation so far this month, according to meteorologist Brian Bezenek. Through Thursday morning, 3.39 inches of precipitation had fallen in April, and the historical average is an inch and a half. Temperatures also have been cooler than average, Bezenek said.

Dry weather was predicted through this weekend and potentially into next week. A high pressure system centered south of Kodiak Island is expected to dominate the weather, but a marine stratus layer could build and create partly to mostly cloudy skies by early next week. Precipitation is not forecast, however, until possibly next weekend, Bezenek said.

While he called this week’s storm "a little odd" for this time of year, Bezenek said such weather is not that unusual during springtime in Juneau. In 1963, for example, a storm dropped nearly 40 inches of snow at the airport during the first few days of April.

The service’s long-range forecasts show slightly below normal temperatures through May and June, with normal precipitation. Spring is typically the driest time of year in Southeast Alaska.

Burma Shave with the Statler Brothers…

 

Watch for the 55 Chevy…

For those who grew up on the "outer edge" of these memories.

  Burma Shave with the Statler Brothers

   You may need to watch it twice; once to watch

  the Burma shave signs change and once to catch all

  the pictures plus listening to the music of the

Statler Brothers.  THIS IS REALLY GREAT.

   For those of you too young to remember "too bad

  you missed it!"

Starbucks Coffee; Pikes Place Roast

A new roast hit the streets on April 8th, Pike Place Roast.  I stopped for a free cup, purchased a new Starbucks card and went a way content.  The new roast is great. It has a smooth subtle flavor and is a welcomed addition to the Starbucks menu.

Is tomorrow forever certain?

I received this from a friend in Australia, Brendan.  Read it and think about it.

Normally I don’t send this kind of stuff. I have a reason..so, just this once……

If I knew it would be the last time that I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door,  I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,  I would video tape each action and word,so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say "I love you," Instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day,

Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more,so I can let just this one slip away. For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right.  There will always be another day to say "I love you,"  And certainly there’s another chance to say "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get,
I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget.  Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,young or old alike,

And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.  So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?

For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day,
That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone,what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear,  Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear.  Take time to say "I’m sorry," "Please forgive me," "I forgive you" "Thank you," or "It’s okay."

And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

Brendan
