Here you go, Mel! This morning all you'll see is WET and this early, our poor little department pickup sitting by itself. :) Anyone who's looking should remember that Alaska is 4 hours earlier than east coast of US, one hour earlier than west coast. Enjoy!

Home <3 :(

I see you're in SLC now, where are you from? The webcam is mounted on the Palmer Library. :)

07-11-2008, 06:38 PM
Thanks, Pat :) Looks kind of gloomy today.

I'm in SLC for the rest of the summer, but then I fly back to Anchorage and I can't WAIT! I'm going to UAA. All of my boyfriends' family are out in the valley though, (well, he's native, so he's got some family out in the villages but we of course never see them) so we drive back out to Palmer/Wasilla every other weekend or so :)

40 days left!!

Well, enjoy the sun in SLC - there's been precious little of it here this summer!

01-12-2009, 10:08 PM
Bumping for Mel - at least we have more than 6 hours of daylight now!

01-12-2009, 10:30 PM
Oh, that hurts just to look. Yikes.

I so love the Southwest!

Well, I'm about 50 miles NE of Anchorage, in Palmer.

Oh man, thank goodness for the "warm-up".

My mother and littlest brother have been stuck in Fairbanks for 2 and a half weeks because it's been too cold to fly out to their village (out past Fort Yukon). The temps finally got into the -40s over the weekend, and so my family has just been waiting on standby.

Joys of Alaskan winter ;>

Oh yes, Zen, still very cold in the interior. We've warmed up to 10 above this morning, but windy so it still feels cold. Snow predicted as well.

Kaebea - well, it'll be nice and light, and not as cold, but we've had some pretty severe snowstorms in March in the past. What part of Alaska? If it's SE, ignore what I've just said. :)

As much as I gloat about being outside during the winter, you do (absurdly) miss it.

Christmas at positive 65 degrees is just not the same.

I love when you bump this thread up...

01-15-2009, 02:29 PM
oh no! what's wrong with it? at 1?30 est it's all blue and purple scratchy lines....

01-15-2009, 07:29 PM
Yes, I noticed this too. I'll go check. It's very windy here, and perhaps it has something on the lens.

01-15-2009, 08:49 PM
whoa, hey, what's all that green stuff on the ground????
and how come we're sittin' here at 1 degrees in ohio and it's 40 up there??

waterrat, i'm coming to anchorage in march. i hope they get some snow!

01-15-2009, 09:09 PM
Oh, trust me, there will be snow! :) We are just having a "January thaw" with 40+ degree weather. It'll be cold and snowy again soon enough.

I moved to VA a couple of months ago. It is warmer here than anywhere else I've lived...have lived in MN and SD, where it was cold (though not as cold as AK). Anyway, there was a recent "cold snap" here meaning the high was in the 20's. I saw some people interviewed on the news who were bundled up in many layers and one said, "I've never been to Alaska but I'm pretty sure this is what it's like." I just thought that you Alaskans would find it funny too!

Pat, is there a new URL? I'm getting a broken link msg.

01-31-2009, 10:22 PM
I'm getting and endless "loading" message. :(

02-01-2009, 09:09 PM
I think the cold has literally frozen :lol: ... It won't download for me either :(

02-02-2009, 02:17 PM
Who knows - I too suspect the weather, though our ISP has been having some issues the last week or so too. It's working this morning, but you can't see that it's slightly below zero. :lol:

02-02-2009, 03:37 PM
Yay Pat, that looks COLD!!! I love to see your webcam, thanks for bumping it!

02-02-2009, 07:48 PM
That's because it is cold! :lol: Currently at 2:45 pm, it's zero F (-18C) Tonight's forecast calls for -10F to -15F (-23C to -26C).

02-02-2009, 08:53 PM
Look just like last year..... :)

02-03-2009, 07:48 PM
um, well...... ya. It probably looks like the last 25 winters the building has been here! Though the models of cars are quite different.

Did you know that in the summer there are people who stand out there and then call home on their cell phones so they can wave to them???

02-03-2009, 08:05 PM
Yesterday when I was looking at it there were people in the parking lot walking towards the building... I would click on the link and every time they would get closer to the building... Aw, doesn't take much to entertain some folk :faint: ...

I totally wave to my husband and friends whenever I make it into Fairbanks in the summer on the Newsminer cam.

My poor Mom and the cold. The heat tape on one section of the pipes going up to the school and teachers quarters has failed, and they have no water until they get a day warm (above freezing) enough to fill the tanks by running hoses overground.

I always love to see your webcam pat!

02-24-2009, 07:02 PM
water rat,
what are the warmest gloves/mittens in your opinion for -20 and below temps?
nothing i have ever packed with me proves to be warm enough.
