We don't know if we have readers in Alaska, but if we do, we are honestly sorry for you: We had no idea it got this cold up there.

The Kuskowim 300 is essentially a feeder race for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, and last week, the race was postponed for a few days because of temperatures that reached 60-below. 60 below.


How cold is 60 below? A couple of participants demonstrate in a short video featuring a cup of water that pretty much makes it clear that we will never, ever go cover the Kuskowim 300.
