when we got into valdez on friday, may 17th, first-story windows were still boarded up and snow had those windows completely blocked in. by the time we left on the 26th, everything had melted a lot and first story windows were being unboarded and propped open. it was pretty neat to see the massive amounts of snow that valdez gets. it’s crazy, actually and i know i could not live there with that much snow.
as the snow melted on the south facing areas, the greenery popped open and it was like we were watching it unfold before our eyes. it was beautiful.
