It's A Dry Heat

Hotel room window, alternate takeWell, at least, that’s what folks in ridiculously hot climates like to say when they’re asked about how they can stand living in places like Phoenix and Dallas in the summer. I think I’ve discovered the cold weather equivalent in Fairbanks, Alaska. The temperature was a balmy -15°F when I arrived, and it’s been in that zone for pretty much my entire time here so far. I’ll admit I haven’t spent a heck of a lot of time outside, but it really doesn’t feel as cold as I’ve felt during the worst winters I’ve been through in Detroit — there’s almost no wind, which makes all the difference.
