Here's an interesting tidbit from the local meteorologist near where I live: A cooperative observer in Chicken, Alaska reported a temperature of 68° below zero Thursday morning. Thats 100 DEGREES BELOW THE FREEZING MARK!! The high temperature was -58°. Chicken has been below zero continuously since Dec. 7. Side note: When they incorporated the town and needed a name, they wanted to call the town Ptarmigan, after a local bird. However, they couldnt agree on the correct spelling of ptarmigan, so they decided to call the town Chicken. This is the coldest temperature so far this winter in Alaska. Fairbanks has been -45° or colder each of the last five mornings. Over the last two weeks, Fairbanks has averaged 28.2° colder than normal! Last Saturday, Dawson, Yukon had a high temperature of -51°. That was 45° colder than average! How is winter going where you live? Do you have more or less snow than usual, or different temperatures other than normal?
