CommentsNorthern Observation Post, James and Lisa Moore reporting from North Pole, Alaska

This has been a rough winter. We had a cold snap of about 6 weeks, where it was -25 degrees or colder. We actually had consecutive days of negative 50 degrees. Lots of snow this winter, approximately 40 inches of snow this winter.

Our prediction;
First Robin Song; May 12
First Robin Sighting: May 15
Hopefully we are wrong and spring comes early.

When do YOU think we'll see our first robin?

It is unusual to the lower 48 States because as the sun is setting in the Southwest, the moon is rising in the Northwest, and it makes the most stunning views! The sky is beautiful shades of purple, the snow on the trees reflects pink, and the moon is up. Neat! It only happens in the winter during the full moon up here.
