Howdy and Happy New Year.
Things are boomin in Barrow, even with temps ready to go down to 30 below tonite in far north Alaska.
Some wonder how this town survives, with no road connections and a challenging climate.
But we love it, and cherish our two Greenland Huskies --Avu and Nuna.
The 4,200 folks are friendly and just a trip to the Post Office daily (no home delivery) is a big social event --see everyone and share news, and views on the Chicago Cubs (and some other more successful teams)
Big news here will be Barrow as a prime site for International Polar Year (2007) and also grand opening of a big, high tech, new climate change and science research center. Should be open in spring.
come on up and feel the spirit!!
