I was just wondering how you deal with the cold in Alaska. I find the winters in Massachusetts unbearable but they're milder and shorter than Alaska winters.

We go out and play in it. Today we have a high of about 18* with wonderful sunny skies. Great day to be out and about the outdoors.

What kind of cold are you referring to?
Windy cold, like in the Alaska Range?
Damp cold, like on the Aleutians?
Moderate cold, like on the Panhandle?
Or really fricken freeze everything in 30 seconds make your eyelashes stick together and your Rockstar slushy on the way to the truck that's barely idling and hasn't been shut off for 8 days because it'll turn into a Chevycicle burnin' diesel that's just 4 degrees above turning into gel despite the fact that it cost $4 a gallon but it's cheaper than freezing to death even if the heater only blows 20 degree air on "High" but you still have to pull over to help out some brainiac hippy Subaru driver with one headlight stuck in a ditch 'cause they swerved to miss a Ptarmigan and they don't have a strap or a shovel so you let them in your rig and they stink like week old cheese and feet but hey it's Alaska and we all do our own thing so no harm I'll just Febreeze the seats after I drop you off in Fox way outta my way cold, like in the Interior?
