Inupiaq word of the day...

Alapaa

(ul-up-AAAHHHHH)

Alapaa means, "IT IS COLD!"

Very appropriate if you ask me. :)

See the windchill? -65 below zero. Stay warm.

GOOD NEWS though, we have a little over THREE HOURS of daylight! :)

It's about -50C, or nearly -60F, in my hometown right now. The word for cold where I'm from in the Canadian eastern Arctic is 'ikii', pronounced ick-KEEE. What are some other Inupiaq words?
