January was one of the coldest months on record with temperatures hovering below -20 degrees.  Its was cold.  Then we had record snow fall making this one of the snowiest winters ever.  Now the temperature is back up near 30 degrees.  Is Spring right around the corner.

Well, it might be but before we get to that lets take a look at the snow load on the roof.  With all this snow and the longer days arriving that snow is going to melt and freeze each night.  this will create ice dams on the roof and possible leaking.  You need to get up there and remove the snow, but be careful, it's going to be slick up there. Just do it soon as more snow is in the forecast.

Spring is definitely on the way.  Iron Dog is coming soon, as well as Fur Rondy, then the Iditarod Sled Dog race.  Longer days and warmer temps make Spring in Alaska a great time to get outdoors.  If you have pictures you'd like to share, you can post them on my Facebook page.  www.facebook.com/ericbushnell.realtor
