For the first time since coming to Alaska we are talking about Mexico, the South Pacific and warmer temperatures. It's a daily effort for me to crawl out of a warm bed into the cold, cold world of Kodiak.
The current cold spell is officially a record-setter, 2 below zero on Thursday morning tied a record set in 1944. Temperatures Wednesday just missed setting another record. But I don't need a thermometer to tell me it's cold, My fingers, toes and nose confirm it well enough.
