THE SUN IS BACK! Spring in Alaska's Largest City

Recommended Posts

Ahhhh yes.. springtime has FINALLY arrived in Alaska. We've sure been through a lot have we not? No this is no rhyming poem.. Its just a HUGE relief that the sun has came back after 7 months of darkness.. But hey, its no wonder Alaska has the highest alcohol consumption statistics in America... But for Alaska's largest city in particular, this is always a special time of the year.. unlike the summer, we are more appreciate of the sun.. kids are playing outside, construction projects resume.. its as if giving the sun a hug as it comes out of the terminal gate at the airport.. you truley missed it.
