Downtown Tok Alaska, Winter 2009

It is so warm here this holiday season, like 15 below to zero degrees. I’m not even wearing a hat or gloves most days. Last year this time I was afraid to carry my toddler out to the car for fear her lungs would freeze in the 60 below and colder weather.

But there is still snow everywhere and will be for months. And months.

Here are a few scenes from “downtown Tok” this past weekend.

That last pic was around 10:45 a.m. with the sun just coming up over the mountains in the distance. It may not be cold here, but boy it sure is dark.

How are you faring this winter?

    I greatly enjoy the pictures you post of life in Alaska. Needless to say, life in Tennessee is very different.

    Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing with us. Winter here on the central coast of California is a mild 50 to high 60’s….just normal here.

  3. Wow, sounds like Tok is having a heat wave! =) Loved the pictures….Hope 2010 is a wonderful year for you.

  4. Fairbanks is the same as Tok.. Cold, but not terrible.. Actually it’s nicer when it’s -20 than when it’s 10 ab0ve! I wasn’t expecting that at all! Makes it easier when they are having HORRIBLE weather back home in Kansas and it’s NICER in Alaska!

    Happy 2010 to you!

  5. And I stayed at that Westmark hotel.. and it’s WONDERFUL.. I loved my short stay in Tok!
