Last week, Alaska experienced heavy snowfalls. The town of Cordova got 18ft of snow in one week. Anchorage got about 6ft during the same time period. Then came the cold temperatures. We have been south of zero for a long time. The overnight lows on the east side of town where I live, have been running about -25f, that's about -33c. The days high is only a few degrees warmer.
During weather like this, I spend a lot more time indoors. This morning I had to get out. The thermometer said it was -21f. Seriously cold. I knew that it was going to be a short walk.
