THIS PLACE IS COLD

Alaska

This Place is Cold
If you visited Alaska, a place near the top of the world, during the winter the first thing you would notice is the cold and the darkness. How cold can it get? Temperatures can drop fifty degrees below zero and even lower. The engine blocks of cars have special built in heaters. People plug their cars into electrical outlets so that their engines won't get too cold to start. Firewood is so frozen that one tap of an ax shatters a log. Snow squeaks loudly when you step on it. Sometimes the wind is so strong you have to walk at a slant. Your breath turns instantly into tiny ice crystals that glitter in the sun. Your eyebrows and eyelashes freeze, but you don't dare rub them for fear they will break off.
