Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States. Unfortunately, it seems the battery died in the weather station just at the critical moment.Something tells me the caribou are huddled along the Trans-Alaska-Pipeline -- in fact, it may be the oil industry that saves these beautiful animals. The irony of it all.
