Early 80’s

The 80 degree temperatures that hit Fairbanks last week set a couple of records. Officially, at the airport, it hit 79 degrees on Friday and 82 degrees on Saturday, both record highs for the two days. The 82 degrees on Saturday broke a record that had been set in 1915.

How warm was it? It was so warm here on Saturday, that our low temp of 59 (also a record) was warmer than the high temp of 47 degrees in Chicago.

On average, our high temp this time of year is 60 degrees.

    If I still lived there I would no doubt be suffering. But since i drove down here to Texas those temperatures are starting to look like a cool spell.
