每日英語跟讀 Ep.K312: About Winter - Alaska faces ’Icemageddon’ as temperatures swing wildly

Extreme weather in Alaska that has brought record high temperatures and torrential downpours has left authorities in the far northern US state warning of "Icemageddon".

阿拉斯加出現的極端天氣帶來破紀錄的高溫和豪雨,使這個美國遙遠北方州的政府警告「冰雪末日」。

Hours after thermometers on Kodiak Island in the south reached 19.4 degrees Celsius - the warmest December temperature ever recorded in Alaska - the interior of the state saw 25 millimeters of rain fall in just a few hours, a downpour unseen in decades.

在南部科迪亞克島的溫度計達到攝氏19.4度(阿拉斯加有記錄以來最溫暖的12月溫度)數小時后,該州內部在短短幾個小時內就下了25毫米的降雨,這是幾十年來從未見過的傾盆大雨。

Then when temperatures plummeted again, it all froze. The state’s transportation department has coined the neologism - a play on "Armageddon" - to describe the chilly impasse.

然後,當氣溫再次驟降時,一切都凍結了。該州的交通部門創造了這個新詞 - 一個關於"世界末日"的戲劇 - 來描述寒冷的僵局。

"We’re experiencing an unprecedented series of winter storms," the department tweeted.

"我們正在經歷一系列前所未有的冬季風暴,"該部門在推特上寫道。

In northern Denmark, an IKEA showroom turned into a vast bedroom. Six customers and about two dozen employees were stranded by a snowstorm and spent the night in the store, sleeping in the beds that are usually on show.

在丹麥北部,宜家的陳列室變成了一個巨大的臥室。六名顧客和大約二十多名員工被暴風雪困住,在商店裡過夜,睡在通常展示的床上。

Up to 30 centimeters of snow fell, trapping the customers and employees when the department store in Aalborg closed on Wednesday evening.

週三晚上,奧爾堡的百貨公司關閉時,高達30釐米的積雪困住了顧客和員工。

“We slept in the furniture exhibitions and our showroom on the first floor, where we have beds, mattresses and sofa beds,” store manager Peter Elmose told the Ekstra Bladet tabloid. People could “pick the exact bed they always have wanted to try.”

"我們睡在傢俱展和一樓的陳列室里,那裡有床,床墊和沙發床,"商店經理Peter Elmose告訴Ekstra Bladet小報。人們可以「選擇他們一直想嘗試的確切床」。

Elmose said they spent the evening watching television and eating, adding it went “super well. It’s been a good night. All fun.”

埃爾莫斯說,他們晚上看電視和吃飯,並補充說它「超級順利」。這是一個美好的夜晚。一切都很有趣。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1497858 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1488145
