Last cold weather post

January 31st, 2012 · Comments Off

This video was sent to me last night. Thought it was pretty cool. I’m getting tired of talking about the weather (especially since I am not experiencing it right now), so this will be my last post about it for a while.

Cold Departure

January 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I managed to escape the Fairbanks cold Saturday night. The airport temperature was -49F when we left. The icefog in town has been horrible – nearly impossible to see. The picture above (not a great picture) was taken on the way to the airport. The icefog was so thick, you can barely see the car […]

Ill-timed escape

January 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

This morning I woke up to -45C (-49F).

The weather station near Smith Lake is showing a 8.5C (~13F) difference between the […]

A bit chilly, but good news as well

January 19th, 2012 · Comments Off

The glow from my winter holiday has nearly been worn off. It has been very cold in Fairbanks for a while now. One of the problems the cold is causing is that my heating fuel is very very cold. The cold fuel has caused my boiler (the primary source of my heat & hot water) […]

Letter to Editor Comment

May 27th, 2009 · Comments Off

Only in Fairbanks . Well, probably not… I find the people (most) that comment on the letters to the editor pretty absurd. I guess that is why I read them.  However, this one was good enough to post. A first for everything.  Enough for now. – – – – – – – – – – […]
