Lightbulb Way up North

How many pen turners are located in Northern New York, Northern Vermont and Southern Quebec? I would take a guess of about 15.

The community of North Pole is a suburb of Fairbanks Alaska. Well known for minus 50 degree F winters.

There is a lot of winter at those latitudes.
