Yes, Alaska too. 7 hours even sometimes, certainly in a day or so it can go from -30 to +20 once or twice in an average winter.
I've heard the old 'if you don't like the weather here, just wait 5 mins. and it'll change' all over the world, in several languages.
Isn't there some place on earth with the world's least-changing weather? That'd be terrible for photography! One regret is interior AK doesn't get much violent weather, unlike the great storms I experienced in Michigan, central Russia, and Missouri... The palouse was weather-lame, too.

I think in the US, the least changing weather is Hawai'i.

I take my hat off to you sir, I can't even imagine -30.

it ended up hitting 20F today, I was so happy to see the proverbial mercury rise that high.

The Raymond Chandler quote about "Meek little wives..." is very well known around here
Myself, I like the Santa Ana winds. They stir things up, knock down the dead palm fronds and tree branches, and make the air crystal clear. Well, clear except if the ground's dry, as it is now, which means lots of dust. And if the fires start, then there's all the smoke. But other times it makes it crystal clear...
I like the winds anyway. Most people just tell me, "Yeah, but you're weird." Which is pretty much their stock answer for just about anything I say, so...
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

My parents have some photos of us (taken on Kodachrome 64) when we were kids, growing up in Central Illinois. One photo was taken Christmas day. It was 70 degrees out and my sister had picked a dandelion and was holding it for the picture, while I was holding a sign with the date and temperature on it. A week later it was below zero with about a 40 below windchill, and my parents got a picture of us again, same spot, me holding a sign with the date, temperature, and windchill.
Today it got up to 40*F. By Sunday supposed to be 47*F. All this after having -11 actual temperatures for a low on Monday.
Shoot more film.

"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
Wonderful weather today, windy white out conditions with wind chills around 0 to -10F, positively stunning Winter photo weather with amazing light.
I just *love* real Winters!

global warming is suposed to hit us this week.... today predicted to be 35 (but I don't think it has or will manage that) then supposed to be 41 (105.8F), 39, 41, 40.. then 26 :-)
There's weather and there's climate. I am not a denialist but let's not get into climate discussions here, they tend to be rather poisonous.
We're on day 2 of a 5-day heatwave of 40-43C (104-110F) temperatures. That'd be a 9-day stretch of 38C+ (100F+); yay for South Australia.
