Alaska: record snow and avalanche

As a reader has pointed out, this winter (2006-2007) has become the snowiest winter on record in Juneau Alaska, just surpassing 194.3 inches from 1964-1965. Also, Thane road was closed due to avalanche. See

Five days ago, Tokyo has seen its record late snow, surpassing the previous record - February 10th, 1960 - by more than one month.

Belfast, UK where the early spring feels like mid-winter, much like in snowy Massachusetts, journalists ask whether the cold weather contradicts the laws of Nature. The answer is that it would only contradict the laws of physics if they went either below -273.15 Celsius or above the Planck temperature.
