Actually, I don't live in Alaska, I was just married there in 2004 while on vacation. My husband's family goes every other year to the Kenai to visit for the summer and we flew up there in '04 and got married and then went back in mid July of this year to visit again. We love it. He would move there in a heartbeat. I on the other hand, just like to visit.
Yes, I am lucky. The only thing that causes me problems in the weather. Rain is terrible. You wuld think humidity would be but where I live we have extreme humidity and I don't have problems very often.
