The S Word

Our Zoo photographer, John Gomes, was busy this past week capturing the beauty of the snow, all while trying not to get lost in the heaping piles of it.  I thought I would share so you can see for yourself how much snow we have at the Zoo. Click here to check out his photos.  (This album also includes pictures of our new eagle aviary!)

Although the amount of snow that has fallen is not an Anchorage record, I've never seen anything like it! To put a number on it, I heard on the radio the other morning that the "official" amount that has fallen in Anchorage is 103 inches so far this winter... that's over 8 feet!  And we've still got March, the snowiest month of all... Yaaaaaay. (Can't you just feel my excitement?)
