This morning on my drive into work I caught the tail end of a Day To Day, NPR news story on Aliza Sherman Risdahland and what it’s like to live in Tok Alaska with a temperature of 78 degrees below zero!

After a little bit of hunting around I found the audio link on the NPR website of the interview.

Day to Day, January 9, 2009ยท Right now it’s cold in Alaska. Really cold. In the town of Tok, it was 78 degrees below zero yesterday. Aliza Sherman Risdahl and her family moved to Tok two weeks ago. Noah Adams talks with Sherman Risdahl about how she’s coping with the extreme cold.

It’s been pretty intresting reading Aliza’s blog and her move to Tok and what life is like in such a cold town with a population of around 1,300.
