Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Heading to Warmth

23F has never felt so warm.  That is the expected temperature when I land in Newark tonight.  I am currently at the airport in Fairbanks,  I leave in 40 minutes to Anchorage.  From Anchorage, I fly to Seattle before flying home to Newark and arriving at 10:17PM.

I had to do some things differently this weekend (Especially with watching football).  Football starts at 9AM in Fairbanks.  The hotel I was staying at has a bar with NFL Sunday Ticket.  But the bar does not serve alcohol until Noon on Sundays.  The good news was I was able to watch the Redskins play the Cowboys.  The bad news was the other people watching the game with me were all Cowboys fans.  And although Rex Grossman had a good game in his Redskins debut, the ‘Skins lost to the Cowboys.  At Noon (about an hour after the sun rose here), I watched the Jets-Steelers game.  It looked cold with flurries at that game, but I couldn’t help but wonder what a game in December here in Fairbanks would be like.  With temperatures hovering between -30 and -25 and a “light” breeze (The winds were light, but when it’s this cold, you can feel the wind of a door being opened.)

I was going to venture out at 3:30, but it had already gotten dark.  And colder.  Alaskans are a hearty bunch.  They say they endure the winters here because Fairbanks is the place to be in the summer.  Temperatures are generally in the 70s and 80s and it doesn’t get dark for long.  The sun rises before 4AM and will not set until after 10PM throughout the month of July.

I can’t wait to be in above-zero weather and the nine hours of sunlight.  I might walk around town tomorrow wearing shorts and a t-shirt (at least until the reality that 30 degrees, while much warmer than the -25 currently here, is still cold.)

Global warming is definitely needed here.  A couple additional hours of sunlight wouldn’t hurt.

Why Ahmnodt? Why?

I heard through some sources that Fairbanks, Alaska was ripe and ready for me to campaign.  I decided to fly to Fairbanks on a whim and arrived here last night.  I have discovered what COLD really is.  It was -34F when I arrived at the airport last night.  Fortunately, it has dropped to -36F.  It is foggy out and there are ice particles in the fog.  It’s so cold here that the sun won’t rise until almost 11:00AM here.  (That’s 3PM Eastern).  The sun will set at 2:00 local time.

This would seem to be the ideal place to give my speech on how I would encourage global warming in the winter.  It’s cold here and presidential candidates rarely come to Alaska in the summer let alone winter unless they are from Alaska (like Sarah Palin),  It turns out they don’t like politicians here.  I tried telling them that I am a business who has never held office and the only reason why I am running for president is to help businesspeople like me have affordable entertainment.  They didn’t want to hear it.

I will be spending the weekend in Fairbanks.  If I am going to campaign, I will have to wonder about (With -35F temperatures, that won’t be easy.)  I didn’t bring work with me and I am finding out everything here is expensive.  I could have gotten stuff done if I stayed at home, but I will be pretty much confined to a hotel room all weekend.

Maybe the people will warm up.  I hope so because the weather won’t.
