Man, I am sick of this weather! It's been on and on rain for the past week and a half with a little sun sprinkled in. We went from almost 90 degrees to 60 and it's bummin' me out, I want my crazy hot Interior summer!
One of the sweet things about Fairbanks is while we normally get to -50 below zero in the winter, it can get to 100 degrees in the summer and normally it's a wonderful, hot, dry summer with lots of sun. (Well, usually a lot of smoke from the wildfires as well but I'm looking at the positive.) In the lower part of the state the winters don't get nearly as cold, the worst I remember was -20 one winter in Wasilla and while the Soldotna area does gets to -25 below, it's only for a short amount of time while Fairbanks will have an average temp will be between -25 to -55 below for five months. That wears on you after a while!
While the lower part of the state might not get that col during the winter it also doesn't get that warm during the summers, 60-ish degrees is about normal for Anchorage and in Seward, we were lucky to get many nice days that weren't raining. Fairbanks however gets that amazing heat and I really think it's one of the nicest parts of the state during the summer. So yeah, we freeze all winter just to thaw out a little during the summer.
