Record setting winter

It has been great in my neck of the woods this 'winter'. Although it started out rough with measurable snow before Halloween - in fact, a bunch of towns had to cancel trick or treating. By and large, though, I have barely seen snow and it has topped out north of 50 in three of the four weeks in January. With all of the anomalous weather, I was not surprised to learn that a new record temperature was recently set. Negative 81 degrees Fahrenheit in Jim's River Alaska. Better them than me.

Even here in Anchorage, we've just finished one of the coldest Januaries on record, and are on pace to set a new record for snowfall with over 92" on the ground already.

We're still trying to determine if Algore holed up here for the season.
