18 sounds pretty good. The best part is that the humidity is so low that the dew point has dropped to -6, meaning we'll have no frost. I'm pretty much done with scraping windows, thankyouverymuch.

Our local fish-wrapper, the Anchorage Daily News (a left-leaning rag if there ever was one) has been sold to a local concern, the Alaska Dispatch. That outfit was, if I'm not mistaken, an anti-Sarah Palin blog back in 2008. One of their writers was the woman who kept suing the Palin administration, and wound up driving Gov. Palin from office, in large part, due to the frustration of having her staff tied up with answering the constant demands for documentation.
My recollection may be off a bit, but their website hasn't demonstrated any particular conservative slant since then. They recently featured an op-ed calling for more Democratic candidates on the Alaska ballot.
It's getting more & more difficult finding an unbiased report on local conditions. I guess that shouldn't surprise me ... but hope springs eternal, and all that.
That hope has rapidly dimmed over the last decade, though.

But God's on His throne, and Jesus is coming soon! And there's this sign of hope from Great Britain, of all places:
Militant atheists should “get over” Britain being a Christian nation, the communities secretary, Eric Pickles, has said.
Whaddya know about that? :)
