  •  Slightly higher ratio of men to women. (2+ / 0-)

    Not an anomalous ratio, though, it's still pretty close to 50-50.  I imagine it's shifted in favor of males to the degree it is because of people who came looking for jobs in the construction and fishing industries.

    Here in Reykjavík, the average January temperature is just a touch below freezing.  The average July temperature is like 60 or so, maybe a little less.  Things have of late been a couple degrees F higher than "average", though, year after year; the arctic is warming pretty quickly.
