21 Alaska Winter Memes that Hit Close to Home!
Winter. Love it or hate it, you can't stop it, and living The Alaska Life means you'll have to endure it! We felt like lightening the mood for those who are...well...less than thrilled about the upcoming blessings of shorter days, colder weather, slippery roads and sidewalks, and aching backs from shoveling. Those looking forward to winter anticipate skating, ice fishing, skiing, snowboarding, showshoeing, snowmachining, and a litany of other outdoor experiences that Alaska has to offer amidst the cold, ice and snow! Either way, these Alaska winter memes will surely put a smile on your face, make you groan because you've experienced the same, or laugh because a friend has had the misfortune of experiencing some of these. ENJOY! We've all been there. 'Lets go for a hike. Let's go for a run. Let's do (insert physical outdoor activity in winter)." You can't really escape the hoarse throat and often freezing eyebrows, eyelashes, and beards for the guys. This gal just happened to get some pretty eyelashes courtesy of mother nature! How much snow did ya get last night? More than 3 Bud Lights? Wow, better fire up the snowblower! We all have that friend. You know...the one who is 'never cold'....yeah, that guy.... If you haven't experienced this...you will...I promise If you haven't seen this person (or been this person)...you will...I promise What do you mean four wheel drive doesn't make me invincible on the roads? Interior Alaskans are proud of how they endure the bitter cold...and rightfully so! Alaskan kids be like: The 107th of January is actually a state holiday! Yep. We call this 'just go with the flow'... We've all contemplated what was worse... But I pay my TAXES!!! Yep...this is true... Alaska winters...where shaving is optional! Besides, nobody has seen these legs in months! Umm...yeah, December 21st, you showed up late to winter...AGAIN! Us Alaskans take pride in riding our snowmachines. Snowmobiles are for groomed trails on the U.P. (via Alaska MEMES) We all have that friend who is always overly-optimistic... Guaranteed you'll see them post 'Spring is my FAVORITE season!' Don't blink...you'll miss the sun! You know second winter is after that weird week in December where it gets to nearly 40 degrees. Third winter is after that week in March that is unseasonably warm, followed by almost 2 feet of snow... Let's try to not play lawn darts with your Corolla on the Glenn Highway this year... Like these Alaska winter memes? Relate to these Alaska winter memes? Share them with a friend! If not, you'll still have to endure whats coming... :)
Actually, kids go out to recess down to -20. Schools don’t close until is -40..maybe. It depends on the boilers working well at those temps with all the coming and going from the outside doors.

I lived near Fairbanks for 8 years,as a kid…now I can laugh at these,walking to school in darkness,aaand walking home in darkness too! They closed schools at -20°,but at -19° we went…so at -20 we may die,but -19 we will be fine,lol…
