It's November, and Southcentral Alaska's unusually warm fall has some plants putting out spring buds - Anchorage Daily News
There’s just one problem: It’s November. “It’s pretty much unprecedented,” said Justin Fulkerson, a research botanist at the University of Alaska Anchorage who said he first heard reports of catkins (also known as “pussy willows”) showing up in the Anchorage area from a fellow scientist in late October. Fulkerson said Scouler’s willow (Salix scouleriana) is normally one of the first plants to bud in spring. They’re usually seen in late March or early April, but for the plants to restart their life cycle in fall, he said, is "really odd and weird.” He said the culprit is Southcentral Alaska’s unusually warm fall, which has willows and other early rising plants thinking spring. “The plants are confused because of the warmer temperatures we’re having right now,” he said. According to the National Weather Service, the average temperature in Anchorage for October was 41.8 degrees — 7 degrees above normal. On Oct. 28, the city hit a balmy 54 degrees Fahrenheit at a time of year when the temperature is typically below freezing. Higher than normal temperatures are expected for Alaska this winter, according to an outlook covering December-February from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. (NOAA map) Meteorologist Bill Ludw...

In the Mountains, Climate Change Is Disrupting Everything, from How Water Flows to When Plants Flower - InsideClimate News
Andes, the Himalaya, the European Alps, and the U.S. Mountain West including Alaska, said Heidi Steltzer, a biologist at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and a lead author of the mountain chapter.
"Shrinking glaciers and snow harm Indigenous Peoples and rural communities greatly. Concern, commitment and action on climate change should not depend on which places, species or people are impacted. Instead, they should be motivated by compassion," Steltzer said.
Will Water Reliability Break Down?
In Crested Butte, about 100 miles southwest of Leadville, hydrologist and physicist Rosemary Carroll studies how disruptions to the water cycle will affect local ranchers and ski areas, as well as drinking and agricultural water supplies hundreds of miles away.
The IPCC assessment found that global warming will change the timing and amount of runoff, "affecting water storage and delivery infrastructure around the world," a finding backed by research focusing on the West.
A 2016 study in six Western mountain ranges showed rising temperatures will shift the snow accumulation zone and runoff timing enough to have significant impacts on water cycles. And some towns in the Rockies and Sierra Nevada are at risk from dangerous flash floods as global warming brings rain, rather than snow, to some mountain regions.
Carroll pointed out her living room window to a craggy ridgeline where she measures how water from melted snow trickles through rocks and meadows down to the East River, on to the Gunnison River and finally into the mighty Colorado.
"The new normal is that the snowpack is melting earlier and we have earlier runoff, and that's a fact. There's going to be less water for a given snowpack," she said. Even in average snowfall years, global warming is reducing the amount of available water for irrigation and storage, she said.
Her research for the University of Nevada's Desert Research Institute and the U.S. Department of Energy will help communities adapt as global warming disrupts flows from mountain streams. Around Crested Butte, the ski industry and local ranchers will feel the changes first.
But addressing those impacts isn't as easy as just throwing a new report on the table. Translating science into action requires working with stakeholders from the start.
"Ranchers know what's happening, they know that things are shifting, but t... Aug 22, 2019
'U-pick' flowers? Couple who met in Alaska open farm where you can pick your own bouquet - York Daily Record
I always saw,” Loni said. “We always had a flower garden at the farm.”
It all started in Alaska
Loni’s parents worked at the Boehn farm until the family moved to Juno, Alaska, 13 years ago. It wasn’t long after that move that Loni and Andy met at a remote fishing lodge in Alaska, where both were working during the summer.
“I was a fishing guide, and she was the assistant manager,” Andy said. “We met her first day there, when the whole group went on a hike. And then there was breakfast, lunch and dinner the next day.”
“It was kind of a whole summer of speed dating,” Loni said. “We quickly realized we had to be together.”
By spring 2008 the couple had married in North Dakota, and after a second summer at the fishing lodge, they moved to Shrewsbury where Andy could work on his graduate degree at York College. He runs Manward Press in Baltimore, an online resource that specializes in financial news.
This week has been a real family affair at the florist farm. In addition to their children Parker, 9, and Willow, 5, Loni’s mom and grandma were visiting and helping with the flowers.
Flower farm a curiosity
Neighbors stopped by while the Snyders were being interviewed, just to see what the signs were about. They were curious after driving past the farm numerous times.
Loni said the signs are one of the ways Terra Farms has attracted customers, but that word of mouth and Facebook have also helped.
“I don’t know why, but Facebook has been a huge part of our business right now,” she said. “I don’t think York really knows what to do with a U-pick yet, so I think there’s a lot of ‘what is that?’. A lot of curiosity.”
Now that the Snyders have nearly a full year under their b...
