It's five degrees in Anchorage. Snow and ice and espresso shops galore and bike riders and vast views of the Pacific Ocean and mucho interest in Tuesday's election ... never a dull moment. The population in Anchorage is about 277,000, so the locals dub it "Los Anchorage."
Got out to Whittier, Alaska, a fishing village, which is the gateway to the Prince William Sound. Salmon and moose and sheep and bald eagles and glaciers ... never a dull moment. Annual average snowfall in Whittier is 240 inches.
How's this for a humbling headline from the Anchorage Daily News?
Fortunately, the UAA fans were patient and kind to the underdogs and didn't heckle. (Unlike the fans in Fairbanks.)
