It should come here and help melt the snow. This is a year for people up and down the Kuskokwim to be ready for a flood. There is a lot of snow this year, more than we had in a few years and the ice is very thick. Should be interesting!

Sorry, I had the link to the real-time radar image so it had faded. I fixed the link to the old image. It's the puff that shows up at the 9 o'clock position.

Yes I'm headed to work in a couple hours. Not sure what they'll tell me at the airport. Might get stranded in Anch for a few days!
