Poll question: Vacation? the "Triangle of Death" or Kaktovik, Alaska?
That is Iraq's "Triangle of Death" by the way.

CNN) -- Officials in Alaska's North Slope late Monday were waiting for a break in a brutal blizzard to ferry power crews and generators into the remote village of Kaktovik, without power since Sunday.


"The blizzard was so bad we couldn't get in there for now," Ahmaogak said, noting winds of 80 mph (70 knots) and a wind chill index reaching 70 below zero. According to the mayor, the power-generation system is still working, but the winds have knocked out the distribution lines to the 300 residents of Kaktovik.

Ahmaogak said the snow has been whipped into drifts up to two stories high by the winds. The power outage complicated matters by knocking out runway lights at the airport.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
