Just for the record.

Each year, I look to see at about what day the last patch of snow thaws in my Mom’s yard in Anchorage, Alaska. It’s always in the same spot, and it usually thaws around April 15th.

This year, after having some earlier weather that gave us hope we could expect an early thaw, it got colder, and we got a record, late snowfall that delayed the thaw of this patch until Saturday, May 3rd!
