on the verge of growing
5 Oct 2002. The Going-to-the-Sun road through Glacier Park opened
on one of the latest dates since the road was built, on 28 June, says Darrell
Christofferson, who lives near the park. The reason for the late opening was
a blizzard on the 12th of June, said Christofferson. Up to four feet of snow
fell in the vicinity of Logan Pass and halted plowing of the road.
In addition, snow
fell early on Logan Pass this fall, said Christofferson. Three
to four inches of snow fell on the pass during the last week of September, forcing
closure of the road for a few days. This year's Sun road "season" has been the
To exacerbate matters, cold
weather has arrived in the area earlier than

when they plow next spring.
I think this is yet one more signal that we're on the verge of an ice age.
