Enough of the Heat…

I started to look back at the pages of blogs we have on here that talk about the “heat”. So, I figured, let’s take a trip up north, way north and try to find some cooler weather. And, what better place to talk about than.. Barrow,Alaska. Here is what the forecast will be this afternoon.

Not bad eh? High today of 60 degrees at Wiley-Post/Will Rogers Memorial Airport (yes, that is the actual name of the airport there, not to be confused with Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City), and that is with all day sun. Remember, the sun will not set in Barrow until next week when it sets at 2:21am (seriously).

But wait, while we may be jealous of the 60 degree high they’re experiencing today. I just noticed that their average high temperature is 48 degrees. So, today’s high is 12 degrees above normal. and 10 degrees shy of the all-time record high… talk about a Northern Arctic Coast heat wave.. just great, and here I thought I would be able to write a story that wasn’t about heat.
