Snow-weary Alaska town orders more shovels
Snow-weary Alaska town runs short of shovels, turns to manufacturer for more
By The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ' An Alaska community already coping with nearly 15 feet of snow first tried Anchorage and other cities when it ran short of shovels after being pummeled by yet another storm.

It finally turned to a manufacturer Tuesday for a special order.

The snow-weary city of Cordova, which has about 2,200 residents, was promised new shovels to be manufactured Thursday and delivered two days later. But it will be too late for the "couple more feet" of snow that touched down Tuesday, accompanied by winds of 25 to 40 mph and gusts to 55.

The latest storm hit much of south-central Alaska. Avalanches along the Seward Highway closed the only route south out of Alaska's largest city, cutting off Anchorage from neighborhoods to the south in Girdwood.
