Six days of record lows in Fairbanks

Apparently door locks are only tested to -20* F.  Of course they are.

 

Today is the sixth day of record lows here in Fairbanks.  The temperature has remained -20 or colder (-38 this morning!) since November 15.  Which means that our door is extremely difficult to open.  A friend of mine recently got locked out of her place.  When she came home from grocery shopping, her lock was frozen.  Her normal trick of using a lighter to heat the key wasn’t thawing the lock enough for her to unlock the door.  She and her 3 month old infant had to wait until a locksmith could come and drill through her door to get her in.  Welcome to winter in Alaska, little one.

 

Record Lows!
