Like the wind will blow two-foot drifts across your front door and front steps on a regular basis. The cycle of Alaskan winter in the interior is:
- Fine, powder sugar snow falls to the tune of three to seven inches.
- Temps drop to below freezing, like colder than a witches tit in a bronze bra, only colder. As in 60 below zero cold.
- Gail force winds follow to bring temps back up to -20 or higher, creating whiteout conditions and drifts that even the snow plows find challenging.
- You no longer need to go to the gym, mother nature has created a wind tunnel for you to shovel snow in on daily, and sometime even hourly, intervals until snow is predicted in the forecast and you can begin the cycle all over.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Any questions?
