Fairbanks hit with Record-breaking Cold: 41 Below

The Associated Press

FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- Alaska's second-largest city is used to cold weather, but few residents expected record-breaking cold this early in the season.
Shawn Ross has lived in Fairbanks his entire life and says few people were prepared for this severe of a cold snap in mid-November.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner ( reports that for the second time in three days, Fairbanks set a new low temperature record on Thursday. A temperature of 41 degrees below zero - the first 40 below temperature of the season - was recorded at Fairbanks International Airport at 6:29 a.m.
The National Weather Service in Fairbanks says that broke the old record of 39 below set in 1969.
The last time Fairbanks residents saw 40-below temperatures in November was in 1994.

Ever think you want to live in Fairbanks, Alaska in the winter? I thought about it, and almost started to create a website for people to donate money to "Make me live in Fairbanks, Alaska", but at this point I'm glad I didn't. As this image shows, I can think of -35 reasons I'm glad I don't live in Fairbanks in the winter:

And don't let those pictures of the Sun fool you either. According to the Weather Underground website, the Fairbanks Sun will rise at 10:53 a.m., and set at 2:39 p.m., for less than four hours of visible sunlight. Bone-chilling cold, and no sunlight ... I really don't know why people live in Fairbanks, Alaska in the winter.
