I'm north of you a bit--in the hills outside of Fairbanks.
Lucky still -42 down here near Salcha, Our high yesterday was -36 HA!
Yuck! :sick: You are a stronger person than I.
really gives you a firm respect for the indigenous folks. I, for one, like the cold....but no where near THAT kind of cold. Take care north, norht, north landers.
Yep, it's warmer in the hills . . . and I agree, the accumulated wisdom of the indigenous peoples who survived this climate is amazing.
I feel like I'm looking down a window into time when I see some of the adaptations. Cave dwellers lived for centuries in climate similar to our current arctic one, and caribou passed through like clockwork on their annual migrations. When the ice melted and the steady food supply moved north, some of them spread out into Europe, and some followed the retreating ice and crossed the Bering Land Bridge, and adapted to what they found here. Their technology may have changed, but I think the problem-solving set, and the skills of living in small groups for extended periods, and beliefs about the animals and land are as old as time.
