Fairbanks power outages due to heavy snowfall
I braved it today, I drove myself to work and came back home safe. Proud and grateful. Only few people showed up to work due to winter storm weather and bad road conditions. Heavy snowfall created power outages. There were over 20 thousand people lost power overnight here in Fairbanks North Star Borough. Our power went off for few hours last night or early this morning but it came back just in time for me to get ready for work. I'm so grateful that we have our power back because there are still thousands of people that are without power and most of them probably won't have it back for few days. Yikes, I hope the temperature won't get to below zero. Schools were closed today and probably tomorrow too.
Parking lot were pretty much empty when I got there
