News update….

Extreme winter weather has left one Alaskan town battling huge snowdrifts and forced another to seek fuel supplies from a Russian tanker.

The Alaskan National Guard has arrived to dig out the town of Cordova, which has seen 10ft (3m) of snow in a week.

Drifts in the town of 2,000 trapped some residents in their homes.

Further north, US Coast Guard and Russian vessels are attempting to reach Nome, which has been cut off by ice and is facing a fuel shortage.

    Been keeping up with this in the News Miner also. Meanwhile, it was 52 here in the Twin Cities Mon., a record high by 3 degrees. About 10 this morning but 25 with a strong NW wind. Guess we know where winter really is; the “old-fashioned” type that is!
