A foot of solid ice over my garden

15 Apr 08 –– Here’s an eye-opening email from one of my readers
Mr Felix

I'm John Finley of Kodiak Alaska. Nothing to report over the years. Dreary winters, lots of rain and from two to six weeks of real winter. Several years the ground never froze. I know because I was a backhoe operator in those years.

I don't recall exactly when the cold began in December 07. Let's put it at the 15th. It locked in then and never let go until now. 45 years in Kodiak and there's never been anything like this, four solid months of winter. It just kept snowing and never melted. It has finally begun to melt but I have a foot of solid ice over my garden, in past years my potatoes were in by now.

I never heard any complaining about no snow for the Iditerod and the other day it was still 40 below in one of the Northern towns.

All the best

John

Thanks for the info, John.

I hope you get to plant those potatoes in time for them to grow properly.

Sincerely,
Robert
