We are warmer here now in the Alaska interior. Above zero during the days and lots more daylight. Spring is not here but it is teasing us. All the Sunshine and temps in the high teens and low twenties have allowed some of the ice to burn off the more travelled roads. The partially exposed asphalt gives some drivers a false sense of security and occasionally you see their cars or trucks in the snow banks along the roads. I still need my Hakkas and am glad I have them. It will still be a while before the roads are all clear and there is always the probability of lots more snow. Nice to know I'm ready for it.
