I spent last Christmas up there, this time of year it's so miserable and dark. I Remember flying home southern Alaska and was happy to have light from 1030-330.

My grandfather was on the north slope in the mid 70's, he said even the everyday food was great and plentiful. He said after a big holiday meal they would go out on the "deck" and feed the Arctic foxes scraps.

We have an old Wellhead that we staged out in our yard. Since a Slang term for Wellheads are known as “Christmas Trees”....It looks like one of our crews got a hold of a set of Tree Lights and there ya have it “Merry Christmas from Prudhoe Bay! As you can see...the sun is beating down pretty hard on us at “High Noon”!
