Um...Candle...the compressed folder is corrupted or invalid. How about I send you a DM with my e-mail addy? Sweden would love to see that data I know.

9999 means the data is missing. Check out January 1947. I think that is the coldest January on record in Kenai.
Kenai weather is different than say Soldotna or Sterling, and can be way different than Clam Gulch or Homer...Rance can report a 10-degree or so difference up or down, from we have in Soldotna. Yesterday it was literally very warm in Soldotna, when I went to Kenai last night, it was almost cold...you could feel the temp drop driving over the bridge of the river...

I Anchorage it also makes a huge difference if you are above or below the inversion layer. A few times in winter I have left my house in the morning with gale force winds nearly blowing me off my feet, only to find dead calm with fog by the time I reach the bottom of the hill at the highway!

dude so i heard in fairbanks when you walk to the liquor store you have to hurry home before your beer freezes so they buy high percentage alchohol so they dont have to run

that seems pretty bad to me i live in anchorage and we do have a few weeks of cold weather but i heard that tok ak had a -79 a few years ago i dont know if that was with wind sheild or not but i am supprised that any native people survived to see the 20th century and im native i find it hard to believe my own people survived the harsh climate we live in but with no gas stoves or snow machines or chainsaws it amazes me that is why i believe the alaska native only 100 years ago was a true surviver i am proud to be decendant of such a strong race but am also saddened that we as a race would lose many members if we had to go back to a complete subsistance lifestyle i mean no imports and no guns or motor boats or snow machines thousands hundreds of thousands would starve o death or freeze i dont think the land could even support the numbers we have grown in the last century


sorry for the bad puncuation
