  1. Is that the college? downtown? It makes me think of cloud plumes from Europa. Our 6″ of snow melted in a flood of rain today. And I thought we had a blizzard. How you must laugh at us from the lower 48.

    • Yes, you can see University of Alaska on the left (multiple plumes of steam) and Fort Wainwright on the right (one plume). Downtown Fairbanks is pretty much in between the two. A weather inversion is holding a cold layer of air close to the ground – you can see moisture and particulates as ice fog covering town. It’s not a good thing for those of us who have to breathe the air but as for the lower 48, with all the crazy weather, I think I’d rather be here!
