I went up there for an interview the other week, and the night before it was 50 degrees out... Interview day, a blizzard blew in.

According to this student I interviewed with, kiddies get rickets there without their Vitamin D shots, because there is so much cloud cover all the time (no sunshine) and they can't synthesize it that way. That was pretty wild... ;)
