6am AST

At 6am on Friday, I saw that the temperature here was 41 degs. I was dubious, so I opened the door, and all I heard was the sound of running water from the melting snow. A quick check revealed that Minneapolis was 17 degs and San Antonio was 27 degs.

How warm was it in Fairbanks? It was so warm, the school district cancelled classes for the day.

Say what?

I’m not kidding. 41 degrees, and classes are cancelled because the roads may be icey. Fifty or sixty degrees below zero? No problem. Classes as usual. 40 degrees above zero? Damn, this is foreign territory, everybody better stay at home.

Insanity.
