We have a winner for my weather quiz question for this wek and a winner of a summer forecast.

_______________

Here is my new weekly weather quiz question for the last time. What do the following Eskimo words have in common: Aniu, Apun,Mauja, Pukak, Qalig, Qannik, and Upsik? Congratulations to Mike for being the first to post the correct answer “snow.” They are all words to describe snow. Aniu -falling snow, Apun – snow on the ground, Mauja – deep, soft snow, Pukak -snow that can cause avalanches, Qalig – snow that collects on trees, Qannik – a snowflake, and Upsik – packed snow. I’ll have a new weekly weather quiz question for you next week starting on Monday. Please remember to post your answer as a comment by clicking on “no comments /comments” in the upper right hand portion of this page under the caption, then add your comment. The first person to post the correct answer will win a week of free personalized  weather forecasts tailored to your needs. The answer has to be a comment to win. An email answer will not count.

Advisories: NONE AT THIS TIME.
