Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Gif showing snow accumulation last evening and overnight. Sorry for the 'interruption' in accumulation; I had to make a weather report at 5:30 pm, where I measure snowfall on the snowboard, and then scrape it off to get accumulation for the next 24 hour period.

Storm total so far (it's still snowing lightly as I post this) is 12.5 inches, though several locations around Tok received up to 18 inches. This has been FUN!

I too watched this several times, as a "snow lover" living in Georgia, I will never see anything like this. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Dave and pbcbb.

Pbcbb, it takes more that that to shut down Tok! :)

The two 'summer' hotels are closed, the three all-season hotels are business as usual.

Anyway Great job on this one. Congratulations on the AC & VIP also.

Thanks Charlotte and Peter.

Peter since we are so very late getting this snow, maybe we have 'caught up' to where our snow-on-the-ground might be in an average year... perhaps.

THANKS SO MUCH FRIENDS!

Quoting nanapoo:
This is SNO-WONDERFUL!!! Love it! Congrats on the AC and the snow....bet you're smiling now!
Yup Sharon, I'm grinning ear-to-ear!
Quoting LarryD:
That is so cool. A really great subject for a GIF. Where are the snowflake photos?
Larry these were those tiny, sandy 'grains' of snow, not the 'party-girl-going-to-the-prom' snowflakes. No fun to take individual shots of these... billions and billions... :P
Quoting weathercrazy82:
Isn't that a pretty big dump for Tok? I thought they received a whole bunch of small snow falls being in a drier area.
You are spot-on in your observation weathercrazy82, this is very, very unusual for us in Tok! We generally get 1-2 inches in each snowfall, in our 'almost desert' climate, and not very often. A dumping like this is MAJOR! This is almost half our average winter accumulation.
