The snow keeps falling Fairbanks, with about 6-7 inches of fresh snow over the last day or so. Spring seems far away. As I prepare for a few days in the Copper River Delta region for the Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival, I pulled this picture out of my archive, taken a few years ago. It puts the current amount of snow in Fairbanks in perspective. Snow plows carved a path through large drifts along the Copper River highway which transects the Delta from the small town of Cordova, Alaska.
