APR 27, 14 .. SNOWMELT UPDATE IN ANCHORAGE ALASKA ..

I have often complained about our news media stating ..

“Why is it the rule and not the exception that our news media seldom completes a story?”

We the readers get ‘caught up’ .. we the readers get ‘involved’ .. in a news event that is unfolding (as opposed to a ‘one-time-only’ .. ‘over-and-done’ news event) and suddenly .. with the story still very incomplete .. nothing more is ever reported.  I could but I will not go into listing countless examples of this phenomenon.

Since I dislike this in the news media .. I like to finish what I start here on my two web sites.

I have been .. for some weeks if not a month or more .. posting photo updates about our snow status here in Anchorage Alaska.  I think that this post will be my next-to-last snowmelt update.  So here we go.

I will begin with the view from our condo living room showing you all a series of recent photos culminating with what it looks like today .. Sunday the 27th of April 2014.

What beauty full winter truly is! You enjoy winter or you are unhappy in Alaska!

DSCN4092[1]Below .. the 27th of April 2014 .. the snow out our living room door is ‘almost’ totally melted. Tomorrow it will be gone until this autumn. Look very closely way over by the far fence and you will see two tiny snow-patches.DSCN4169[1]I walked over to the above fence to show you a close up view of the snow patches.DSCN4170[1]

DSCN4172[1]Then .. standing with my back to the above fence .. I photographed our condo.  Can you recognize the three familiar trees that are always visible from our living room? The automobiles visible to the right of the below photo are in our carport.DSCN4173[1]Our Honda automobile ..’Little Silver Lady’ .. asked me to take her photo to show you all.DSCN4187[1]

Now lets look at the front of our condo. Once-upon-a-short-time-ago we had WINTER!

That formerly majestic pile-of-snow above is no longer what-it-once-was!
