Fairbanks records first, but unlikely to be the last, 40-below temperature of the season – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Local News

December 27, 2013

It seems unfair as I sit soaking up the Texas sun at 58 degrees

but this article from my hometown newspaper caught my eye.

Fairbanks records first, but unlikely to be the last, 40-below temperature of the season – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Local News.

It seems some of the collage students are immune to our Alaskan weather


Or how about these hardy people who just need to take a quick dip in the lake

2013 Polar Plunge 12

However I think for these last few weeks

I will sit back and enjoy the 90 degree difference between  Fairbanks and Texas

    We’re a bit colder up here, 53 below, but the good news is, the weatherman says it only feels like 53 below. :)

    Well, some of that cold air is ending up here. 35 tomorrow (Sat.) & barely above zero on Sunday with teens below zero most of next week at night.
    In spite of our country’s leadership & present financial situation, I’m wishing all of you a Happy & Blessed 2014!

    Lauramacky, if you see this, my wife’s sis. lives in Eastern Samar. We are preparing to repair the house starting next month. They have found a contractor back there willing to do the job, especially on the roof. We should have that house here; not a crack in the concrete walls with those 180 mph winds. And the only reason the roof was damaged was from the power pole with the transformer snapping off & smashing down on the roof.
    You said in a previous comment your sil is south of the main area of impact. Does she live in Mindanao?

    only wondered how you can say my Alaska when you don’t even pay rent to live in it.

      No I am blessed to not have to pay rent in the conventional sense but I have worked for years helping the woman who owns the land I live on. And over the years in Alaska some drops of my blood have touched Alaska’s soil from Deadhorse to Valdez and from Tok to Galena, so just maybe I am entitled to call it my Alaska.
