Spring up North
It's been a cold March on the North Slope: though Monday the average monthly temperature at Barrow was about 9 degrees below normal. And this morning continues that trend. Here's a photo from Barrow (UAF Sea Ice webcam), with the school bus trundling along through a brisk -29F morning. Elsewhere on the Slope (through 7am ADT), lows include 43 below at Nuiqsut and Umiat, 42 below at Deadhorse Airport and 37 below at Atqasuk.
