    Ok do trees actually grow up there or do you have to get them delivered ? If they grow what kind of tree is it ? I have always wondered about this.

    Thats it I declare it winter, -5 this am and -6 right now if my $9 WallyWorld I/O thermometer can be trusted. I think it is fairly close since mustaches and nose hairs get frosty at that temp and mine were.

    We are on day 13 of t being -25 or colder with no end in sight. At least from this point on you can't feel a difference until about -60 because its just damn cold and you freeze instantly.

    We only hit about -30 for a couple nights last year. It beats the years when it lasts weeks on end. A friend who grew up here went to college in AK and said although it got colder there it seemed to feel colder here due to the humidity, any thoughts on that one?
