Oh, that burning question!
We’ve been here in Juneau for almost 4 months now… so seriously, how boring can this place be?
It’s May and summer is quickly approaching, although some may say it’s already here. We’ve been having long days of sunlight (when it’s not raining) and the temps have actually gotten up to 60. I’m still amazed when I look outside at 10pm and it’s still slightly light out there. We gain 6 minutes more of sunlight everyday until the Summer Solstice – which I believe is June 21st – which is the longest day of the year. The morning sun is throwing off my sleeping just a bit but I can’t say I mind, especially since the sun is so scarce in the winter time.
So really, how boring can this place be? What is there to do?
If you detest doing all of the above things, then living here is super boring and definitely not for you. But if you think it sounds amazing…then get up off your rear-end and move here already! The weather can be rather persnickety and some summers are all rain and no sun but I’m hoping that won’t be the case for our first real summer in Alaska. Because I’m really looking forward to fishing, whale watching, and trying to not get eaten by bears in the very near future in this place that I now call “home”.
Stay tuned for the next blog post [but please don’t hold your breath because I promise you will die waiting.]
