Welcome to the site!
I lived in Fairbanks for a few years, courtesy the USAF, and always liked stopping in North Pole. Seeing that illuminated temperature sign along the highway in the dark was sometimes a bummer in mid-winter, though. You folks seem to have had more than your usual share of nippy temps this year, I've heard.
