Windows open since April

August 20, 2010

One of the great things about living in Alaska that isn't immediately obvious from my previous blog posts is that the windows in my apartment have been since I moved back here in April. In Kentucky, Illinois, and many other places I've lived in my life, the windows are normally closed in the summer once it gets too warm, but here in Alaska they're opened in April, and will stay open until some time in September.

One caveat to add here is that they're not wide open any more. With the temperature starting at roughly 46 degrees the last few mornings, the windows are just cracked open during the night, but hey, they are open. And just like many states in the Lower 48, they'll be closed this winter.
