Al's Rantings

A view of the world from a hillbilly perspective.

Location: Virginia

I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

How Cold Is It?

How cold is Alaska?

Well, Fairbanks is about to set a record. With 4 days to go in the month, the city is on track to set a record for the third coldest (yes coldest not warmest) month in the past 102 years!

January 06 has an average temperature of -19.2 degree Fahrenheit. That is pretty darn cold!

The coldest month of record for Fairbanks was exactly a century ago, when the temperature averaged out to 36.4 below for the 31 days of January 1906. Second coldest was December 1917, and third coldest January 1971 with an average of 31.7 below.
Hillary should go to Fairbanks and warn about global warming.
