What a Difference: February 4th, 2012 vs. February 4th, 2013

Below is the same parking lot today.  The snow, which was several feet deep in places last winter, barely covers the ground this time:

February 4th and 5th are the optimum days for winter snowfall in Southcentral Alaska.  For instance, on the night of February 4th and 5th, 1955, Whittier had a new accumulation of 144 inches of snow.

The lower of the two above photos was taken with my new camera, a Pentax WG-II water resistant digital camera.  I'm tired of cameras breaking so easily.  Supposedly, this one will not.

Below is the camera, plus my new hearing aid set, which Judy loves:
