It hasn't been that bad in southeast Alaska, Dean, but it's seriously brutal farther north and in the interior of Alaska. Juneau has had zero temperatures for lows and up to 15 or so in the daytime but up there for the last two weeks some places they've been registering 45-64 MINUS.

The other day it was warmer in Barrow - at the top of the state and much closer to the North Pole - than it was in a number of places a great deal farther south.

In Anchorage, which is on the water, which means the ocean should be moderating the weather, they've been minus zero temperatures even in the daytime.

As they say, the world may end not with a bang but a whimper... :)
