The Weather in Barrow: Cold

My friend Alaskan Mike has finally crept out of hibernation in Barrow, Alaska, the northern-most city in America. He sent the photo above, and reports a temperature of 36°F and a windchill of 32°F. Mike describes this as warm.

New York City was supposed to reach 94°F today. Incidentally, the city of Barrow has an area of about 18 square miles and about 4,000 inhabitants. Manhattan is just a little bit larger with about 22 square miles. It has more than 1.5 million inhabitants.

We last heard from Alaskan Mike in December. Go here and here for his previous reports.
