Mark's Stories. How to stay warm in Alaska.

Many years ago, I lived for a couple of winters in Alaska, doing work that had me outdoors quite often.

When I first arrived, in the middle of January, it was bitterly cold (so I thought), hovering around ten below in Anchorage. By the end of the next winter, I had experienced over fifty below zero.

While there, I asked a local, who had lived there many years, how they stayed warm in the winter. His answer is now a personal proverb of mine.

He said, We stay indoors!
