Snow-weary Alaska town orders more shovels
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- When you're trying to clear out 15 feet of snow, a regular shovel just isn't going to cut it.
That's why city officials in Cordova, Alaska, have arranged with a Canadian company for a special order or large, scoop type shovels capable of moving a cubic foot of snow at a time.
Cordova has been buried in snow this winter, and officials are trying to dig out. The Alaska National Guard has sent about 70 people to help clear the city.
