As some people may know the winter months in Alaska can be extremely ... "COLD" ;o/
And Robert Swetz aka Vegas Bob/Alaska Bob is wondering if he is going to be able to handle the cold.

Anchorage, Homer and Seward are areas close to the ocean so winter temps are some what mild.
But Fairbanks and other areas around Alaska can reach temps of 40 below zero ;o(
