Has it dropped below freezing in Fairbanks yet?

Northern Southeast got a good rain last weekend, with Pelican receiving 14 inches in one day. Also stormy this weekend. However, Ketchikan is still fairly dry.

We got our first "snow" (if you can even call it that) a couple days ago and we've been in a freeze/thaw cycle since then. This is the point that I start cheering for the depths of winter to set in, and quickly.

As an aside, I recently bought a "new" pickup that came with winter tires, so I have studded tires for the first time ever (have always had Blizzaks before), and so far I have a strong preference for Blizzaks. I'm curious to see how I'll like them when we get real snow and when it gets cold.

Hope we have snow before it gets too cold, I only have a 4 wheeler or snowmachine. Bicycle or feet when can't use either of those.

Super warm in Fairbanks this morning - just a Woolrich for a jacket today. My thermo got knocked off, but I think it was mid 20s at my house and it's probably a little warmer in town.

I'm ready for snow, along with probably 95% of the rest of Fairbanks. What a weird October.

keyman, I work with a gal who lives at the top of a big hill that's a couple miles from my place. I think she's in her mid-60s and she bikes 20-miles to work every day whether it's 70*F or -40*F. She is my hero.

20 miles each way? That's incredible. Even 10 miles one way is quite impressive for any age.

We're still fairly warm here too. No snow on the mountain tops.

Yeah, I used to live right above her and it was exactly 20 miles to work from my house. She is a total badass and finished a 2750 mile race in 30 days this last summer. Less than half of the riders finished, and she was one of them.

I misspoke, though. I had to look it up... She is only 59. Or, she was during the race.

My cousin has done Iditasport a few times and I thought that was pretty intense, but he's only 48, and that is a decidedly short race compared to 2750 mile, even if it is in the dead of winter. Haha. Totally different races, I know... she just has this elevated image in my head, I guess.
