Winter time means cold weather and with that brings cabin fever. So far, we have been blessed with a very mild winter up here in the Alaskan arctic. One day we even had the temperature go above freezing! Whenever I chat with one of the local Inupiat natives, they say the weather feels like springtime.
The first day of winter has come but cold temperatures are nothing new for us up here in the arctic. It has been below zero for the past month already. Some days, when the Siberian winds are blowing at 30-40 mph, the wind chill makes the temperature feel like it’s -50 degrees (Fahrenheit).
