The cold weather has not bothered me at all here in Barrow. What has bothered me is the DRY!!!ness. In just the past 2 days, I have had 3 bloody noses (including one while I was teaching my first graders about the difference between are, is, and am). My skin is also not liking this dry weather. I put on lotion and chapstick but it doesn't really make a difference. Advice for those who are prone to bloody noses and dry skin: Barrow would not be an ideal vacation spot.
Other than that, we're having a great time! We'll try to update later on how our weekend was!
