Cold front in SoFlo? Former Gardens resident braving -28-degree temps

Former Palm Beach Gardens resident Graham Strickland packed up his truck last April and drove almost 5,000 miles to his new home in Delta Junction, Alaska, fulfilling a dream of building his own cabin there.

During the adventure and since then, his father has been sharing pictures with The Palm Beach Post.

A cold front in South Florida is expected to bring temperatures into the mid-60s Sunday night, downright balmy compared to Delta Junction, where it was 28 degrees below zero Thursday.

Check out these photos of the snow-covered landscape from the last several months.

Former Palm Beach Gardens resident Graham Strickland is now living and working in Alaska. He accompanied his boss in December to a remote village called Healy Lake. They had to drive across the frozen Tanana River and a lake. They worked outside for about four to five hours, where the temperature was around -20.
