211. Barrow loses the sun (only temporarily)

Barrow, the northernmost point of North America, had sunrise today at 12:47 pm and sunset at 1:33 pm. The sun will rise next on January 24.

There is a movie coming out in about a year called "30 days of Night" based on the comic book series by the same name. It is about a group of vampires that move to Barrow and terrorize the town.

wow. the halakhic timing of prayers must be havoc up there.
See entry 105
Figured since there was no link for email so I'd leave you a message. In september I drove to Alaska for a bit and found a Jewish Eskimo from Barrow while in shull on Rosh Hashana- he would be the northern most Jew- except he lives in Anchorage now and is an attorney. Jewish mother- Eskimo father- just thought you should know.
