Are you Alaskan?
There are plenty of people who can tolerate the cold, and some that can't. What can YOU handle? An Alaskan can handle anything. Ice, temperatures below 0, driving on ice and in snow, and kids can still get to school assuming it's not cancelled because if the snow.
Are YOU truly Alaskan? Hey, you may not live here, but you can see if you possibly could. In order to determine that, you need to think how you handle cold temperatures below 0, driving on ice and in the snow.
