Just got an E Mail from the AD at the school where I am supposed to be driving a three crew to this weekend. He suggests that we call before we leave (4.5 hour drive). He says the visiting team may not be able to travel because of a school policy. They are not able to travel if the temperature is below -40. We don't have much snow but how would you like 40 below?

Sunny and 55 (ABOVE) here.

Can't see myself getting out of the house when it is that cold...much less driving 4.5 hours to call a basketball game. Guess it's good I live in the South

I noticed that you umpire softball. What are the temperatures like in the summer?

Road trip!

Sounds like Anchorage to Homer. It's a pretty drive, just a long one for a basketball game.

Ed,
Spent some time in Kotzebue, Noorvik, and some of the other villages out there. Loved the country.

What level is this? I can't imagine ever travelling that far for a game unless it was college.

Well it is Alaska after all. Your next door neighbor is probably a good 2 hour drive.

Re: Maybe it's just me

Wow. I thought my 3-hour round trip game was bad. That's unbelievable! Do they pay you for travel?

We have a school Board policy that if the weather is at -37 (celcius), schools are open but bus transporation is cancelled.
They don't want kids waiting for a bus on a street corner at that temperature.
Also, I'm told that the diesel fuel used by the buses gels at -37 and can no longer be burned by the engine. Not a mechanic so I really have no clue if that's true or not.
