Polar Vortex


by Ryan Overton

On Tuesday we had a little fun with our Fox affiliate in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Their temps were nearly 30 degrees cooler than here in Alaska. In fact much of the US was colder than Anchorage. Chicago's high on Tuesday was 5 degrees and a low of -11. Atlanta had a high of 25 and an overnight low of 6! Temps, "Hotlanta" isn't exactly used to. Last our friends in Grand Rapids saw yesterday a high of 9 and a low of -1. We know exactly how they feel.


So since we were enjoying our heat wave, they asked for a video of the weather up here in Anchorage, which they played during their 10pm news and then we received this in response.

I appreciate what you guys do at the weather stations, but do me and other Alaskans the respect of pronouncing the name of our villages or towns correctly. For example, Ketchikan is not pronounced Keetchikan, and Gustavus is not pronounced gustavious. You lose a lot of credibility when you cant the time to learn the names of the communities you report on
