Living in Alaska in October

October 13, 2010

As another quick note, I have to say, living in Alaska in October hasn't been bad at all. It hasn't snowed again since I drove back from Seward, and the weather these last few days has been spectacular, with cool temps in the forties, but 100% sunshine.

The sun has been the most pleasant surprise. While it's very low in the sky, it's still light out from roughly 9 a.m. until 7:15 p.m., which has been more than I expected. I'm sure November 21st through January 21st (thirty days before and after the winter solstice) are going to be very difficult, but so far it's been really wonderful here.
