Incidently folks, while composing this page, Pat looked for some links with additional photos of Palmer to link to these pages, and she ran across a Palmer weather report. At 9:30 AM, November 3, 1999 they reported a temperature of a whopping -1º! The wind chill was -13º! By 10 AM it was all the way up to 0º. We'll remember our friends in Palmer, Alaska fondly, but we don't envy all of their weather.
