Bitter Cold In Alaska

Fairbanks has been averaging about 16 degrees below normal this month, with an average high temperature of-13F. Only two days reached the normal high temperature.

My understanding is that Alaska is not part of Europe.

    It is about as close to Europe as Australia is to Greenland! However they are in the same Northern Hemisphere.

    Weather, not climate!!!

    I’ve been in much worse up there. Seen much worse. I still can’t understand why people came to live there.

    It has been well known, for some time, that record lows only occur in populated areas. I’m sure that we’ll be provided with myriad examples of record highs in thermometer-free regions that will more than balance the Yin and Yang of Climate Psyience.

    I served in the US Army as an infantryman in Ft. Wainwright (just outside of Fairbanks). Going out in the field in winter was definitely not a good time. It was bearable when we could setup tents. Otherwise it wasn’t. While we would be cold occasionally, I have no idea how the animals coped. One of the most pitiful sights I saw there on my tour was a Moose and her calf wandering around the post looking for frozen food in someones yard or garden. The snow on was piled high on their backs (I’m sure it melted eventually). Hopefully this mass of cold air moves to cool down the eastern canadian inferno. I don’t need to see any of it in the lower 48.
