Crazy Wind A'Blowin'

3 days ago, my porch - and all of Anchorage - had 5 feet of snow on it. A SOLID 5 feet, built up over the last 3 months of one of the snowin'est winters on record. then came 2 days of 40-degree weather, which shouldn't dent 5-feet, but the 2nd day of which was this.

('Hillside' is, roughly, the southern half of Anchorage. 'Muldoon' is where I live)

skiers report on my porch- new snow last 24 hours: none. base: 0' conditions: slippery-to-bone dry. damndest 5-feet-of-snow disappearing act i've ever seen."
