We've heard about the snow in Cordova, AK and Valdez, AK but how about some HD video? See the unreal footage here.

Here we are in D.C. with the 3rd lowest amount of snow for a winter since 1888 (0.6 inches) and I've heard plenty of rumblings about people missing the white stuff. Well let's take a look at the absolute opposite spectrum in Alaska, as parts of the state have been dumped on this winter. There have been all kinds of reports out of Cordova, AK, with up to 18 feet being reported in parts of the town. The video below is from Valdez, AK, which is not far from Cordova just north of the Prince William Sound. I watched in amazement as I've never seen anything like in my life, not even in pictures!
