Anchorage is literally having the coldest, cloudiest summer on record.
We even got "termination dust" (snow) on the Palmer mountains in mid-July. That's wrong on so many levels...
Patti Greene spent many years living in the Southeast (Juneau and Kodiak) where sunny days are rare and relished. On this oh-so-rare sunny day in this oh-so-cold summer of 2008, she reminded me of our late Governor Jay Hammond's habit of suspending government business on a sunny day in Juneau. Heck, a sunny day in Kodiak even meant that the kids got out of school!
In fond memory of the spirit of Gov. Hammond, I am declaring today a "sunny-day-holiday" from the computer...at least until nightfall!
Happy Weekend, everyone!!!!
