Summer one of Alaska's coldest
High temperatures 3rd coldest on record

Gardens didn't grow. Salmon returned late. Bees didn't make honey. Swallows didn't breed.

7  Sep 08 - There were just two July days when temperature at the offices of the National Weather Service in Anchorage hit 70 degrees or better.

Those temperatures occurred at the beginning of July and were immediately followed by a long stretch of cool and wet weather. “With only two days above 70 degrees this year, that sets a new record for the fewest days to reach 70,'' the weather-watching agency reported Friday.

Add to the lack of heat and sunshine what the agency calls "an astonishing 77%" of days colder than normal, and you get the picture.

Gardens didn't grow. Salmon returned late. Bees didn't make honey. Swallows didn't breed. And the sunbathing, well, what sunbathing?
