Pages from Cordova’s big snow of 2012


I just wanted to take a quick moment to share some of my pages from The Cordova Times during Cordova’s snow emergency early this year. It was all over the national news and even had some world news mentions. The newspaper’s was interviewed by MSNBC, CNN, BBC London and the Canadian Weather Channel. One of the snowiest cities in Alaska, these folks are weather hardy and know how to deal with a little snow. But with snow levels reaching the eves of some houses, residents tunneling to their doors and rain on top of the snow creating a real hazard the city declared a snow emergency. The National Guard and Coast Guard arrived after some travel delays to help clear roofs and streets. Here’s a couple pages to show how we presented the news.
