One effect of the extremely cold temperatures in the Arctic is that occasionally you find yourself driving on square tires. If you get in a vehicle, and the ride feels like you're bumping along in a Flintstones car, it's because the tires got so cold that they froze flat on one edge and stayed that way!
I should have written this post back when we had -40 temperatures, as it would have been more relevant then. Now we're hovering around freezing, so this effect doesn't happen, but I thought it was interesting enough to share anyway.
On the subject of weather and temperatures, we now get almost complete daylight. Sunset is technically at around 1 am, and sunrise is 5 am, but even in the middle of the "night" it's not completely dark.
We will experience our last sunset in a couple of weeks. Then it's 24-hour sun through the summer... what an adjustment that will take.
At least the temperatures are warming up slightly, although we are still experiencing snow!
