Gorgeous Frosty Winter
It has been another weird weather year. The temperatures bounce up and down which we have come to find normal as it freezes then warms up and rains, then we get hurricane force winds, then a blizzard. 2019 was the warmest year ever for Alaska. It was 90F degrees here this summer which has never happened before at this coastal location. It has gotten to 100F in the interior however where I grew up.
It was 52F just before Christmas here which is WAY too warm for winter in Alaska.
We just went through over a week of subzero weather. It got down to -25F at night in some areas and stayed between -8F and -16F here at our home all week. Cold by our standards nowadays but not nearly as cold as it can get in the interior where I am from (where it is farther from the coast and gets hotter in summer and colder in winter).
It was gorgeous! Here are some pics I took.
