OK, now it’s COLD!!

Woke up this AM to find that school was cancelled due to cold. Huh? They hardly ever cancel school here. Then they did the weather. -54 F, with a wind chill of -78 F. OK, that’s cold. Everyone else joined in in calling off work, so I’ve got a day at home.

I managed to get a picture of the Tundra Garden under its snow drift about half an hour ago. If you look at the right hand side of the picture, the white isn’t snow, it’s ice fog. It’s actually warmed up a bit, though. We don’t get ice fog here as much as, say, Fairbanks, because it’s usually a bit too windy and we don’t have any mountains around at all to help with temperature inversions. But when it gets cold enough and the wind drops, just heating houses will do it.
