Alaska winter 2020 is either icier than in a long time, or so short on ice the census takers can’t drive the ice roads.Public radio will tell you both.The latest version from NPR is this:

“On the front lines of climate change, warming temperatures and thawing permafrost are making it harder to get an accurate count for the 2020 census in some of the most remote communities of Alaska.”

The latest version from KYUK, a public radio station actually on the front lines in the Southwest Alaska community of Bethel is this:

“For the first time ever, the ice road on the frozen Kuskokwim River has been plowed to Sleetmute, a village north of Bethel.”
