I lived on a military base near Big Delta for three years (as a child). Know exactly what you are talking about.

One winter, the ACTUAL temperature fell off the scale which could only measure to -70 F. Every residence had an electric outlet on a pole in their parking space to keep the car from freezing. We kids were bussed (trucked - duce and a half) one block to school.

Really chilled!

I was stationed at Eielson AFB just south of Fairbanks for 4 years. Coldest I saw was -58. Was a beautiful drive back to NJ when I left. Made it in 4.5 days solo.

Except the snow insulates the ground keeping the heat below ground so the air is even colder!!

Don't care about outside, I bank the snow up around the foundation and with some on the roof does wonders to keep the heat in the house. Just where I want it.

It could be that cold but today was 40 degrees above with melting snow and rain. The bay tends to moderate the temp. when it is cold it is very cold but the past 2 weeks have been just at freezing. Jut strange how the temperature is warmer here in Alaska than it is in the continental United states. I know I am enjoying the warmth
