ANCHORAGE, Alaska — After days of shoveling and periodically shutting down the highway because of fears of an avalanche, things have calmed down in the city of Cordova.
"We are ahead of the game now with this good weather," Cordova Public Information Officer Tim Joyce said Saturday afternoon.
Temperatures have dropped, and the skies have cleared, giving Cordova residents an opportunity to catch up before the next storm.
The Alaska Army National Guard and U.S. Coast Guard are still on hand to help shovel the enormous piles of snow that are sitting all over town.
The most at-risk buildings have been cleared, according to Joyce.
School is expected to reopen at 10 a.m. Monday, and other city buildings like the pool, recreation center and museum are also expected to open next week.
