ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage's near-record snowfall has
led to postponement of an annual cleanup week in the city.
The Anchorage Chamber of Commerce says its cleanup week is now
set for May 12 to May 19. It originally was scheduled to run April
28 to May 5.
The city is 3.3 inches from breaking the seasonal snow record of
132.6 inches set in the winter of 1954-55. To date, 129.4 inches of
snow has fallen this season.
Chamber officials say that with so much snow, breakup is
expected to take place later than in past years.
According to the chamber, thousands of people participate in the
annual cleanup, collecting almost a million pounds trash every
spring.
