That stinks. Hopefully it thaws before it is covered with more snow.
Still waiting for our first snow flakes down here, we did finally have our first freeze last night from southern Minnesota all the way to southern Missouri!

I was out from about 10:30 to 12 Noon and in South Anchorage and found many intersections with water, mostly frozen, in the low spots. In places the roadway was wet and I saw drivers coming up to intersections going at an excessive speed. I saw no wrecks but it looks like the ice is melting and water over ice makes for treacherous driving conditions. Most drivers out there today are fools and think they can still slam on their brakes and stop like they've been doing all summer. Slow down and drive safe is the rule for this kind of conditions.

What do you call a tiny car on slippery round-a-bouts?

Just curious, is the majority of the snowfall wet or dry in the areas from Anchorage to Wasilla? Could you build a snowman with it, or is it too powdery even for a small snowball fight to ensue? Either way love the stuff!

Most the time it's a dry snow, though there is the wet stuff to, like the snow we got the other day.

We got jack squat today, but have a few inches on the ground. Supposed to get more tomorrow. On the other hand, I went for a drive up the pass, wanted to get a better view of the Lowe River Valley than I could from the pullout, and fell in up to my knees without hitting the ground within about six steps from the road. Definitely got some snow up there.

Keystone Canyon is icing up, too. Here's part of Bridalveil Falls:
