THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS SATURDAY, JANUARY 4, ~* Alaska So Cold They Chop The Cat Out Of The lee FAIRBANKCS, Alaska (API It's so cold they had to chop the cat out of the ice, the car radio goes "knock, knock" and propane torches shoot liquid instead of fire. But Alaskans know how to cope with temperatures way bo- low zero. They just stay indoors and go out only if it's necessary. Central Alaska is in the middle of a frigid weather front thai has sent temperatures tumbling like icicles in a spring thaw. It's been like that for three days. However, it's expected to warm up today to temperatures of 25 to 20 below. Comfortable enough to celebrate Alaska's 10th year as a state today. Thursday evening Ihe mercury dropped to minus 06 and the overnight forecast called for a low of - -65. The all-time low is 66 recorded on Jan. 14. 15)34. Schools have shut down but It's business as usual iti: downtown Fairbanks. About 42 inches of snow covers the ground al- 1 hough no new snow has fallen in a week. Thick ice fog has cui visibility in some downtown areas to 10 feet and lias disrupted airline schedules. It's caused by warm air rising from the ground which turns In log as ii hits the frigid air. "Kven with Ihe minimal sunlight we get here. It's enough to warm the ground a bit and thai causes the warm air to rise." Shane O'Neill, a Fairbanks resident, said Thursday. The Weather Bureau said the average temperature for December was —17.7 or 10 degrees colder than normal. The highest temperature for the month was Mi degrees on Dec. 19. New Year's Day it was 60 below four degrees below the record for the clay set in 1965. It warmed up Thursday to -59 another record for the date. O'Neill said firemen had to free a cat after its paws became stuck in ground ice. Vat Licked It's Paws "Apparently it licked its paws because they were so cold and when it set them down they froze to the ground," he said. And, in the icy conditions propane gas turns to liquid. "One fellow was using a propane torch outside to try and thaw an oil line to his house. The flame stopped and liquid started shooting out," O'Neill said. The cold also flattens car tires by decreasing the air pressure inside, "It's like riding on square tires until they loosen up" said O'Neill. Motorists are advised to increase the air pressure. Even cars with special heaters that plug into outside outlets won't work. "Unless they're inside a warm garage they won't start. I turned on my car radio today and it went knock, knock. It sounded like a hammer pounding on the thing. Later it warmed up and worked all right." Homeowners must constantly check fuel and water pipes. And precautions must be taken to guard against frostbitten ears. "It's very painful when they thaw out. They turn white, then after eight or 12 hours they're red. and if,you're lucky the outer skin won't peel off," O'Neill said. EWING ! and Mrs. Trelly Proweil ThUrs- i flay night and Friday,. i Pvt.
