Looking for a cooler place to live

I know.
This is Alaska.
Land of ice.
Land of icebergs.
Land of glaciers.

And today on my way home from Palmer after work the temp thing at the bank said ...

89 degrees.


This is Alaska!!

No air conditioning.
One ceiling fan.
Living area upstairs in the house.
That means it is only 84.4 degrees in the house.

Remind me that I complained when it hits -26 in January. :)

these old houses in eveleth stay pretty cool. year round. but in the summer its especially nice! there are plenty of them available and the price is right.

I'd even throw in a window air conditioner if you moved here. Better yet, I could get you a central air conditioning unit for free:)

It cooled off today. I think I can deal with this. So far we've had about 3 days of really warm, but cools off beautifully at nite. Not worth the air conditioner ... yet. :)

I'm sure it gets warm inside with no ac! Frans thinks I keep my house too cold, but I can't stand being hot inside! We are supposed to have record heat this weekend...it's supposed to get up to 116 or something today! I think I'll be just fine tho sitting inside..but poor Frans is out working! i don't know how these guys do it!

So is the oven, but I don't see you sitting in there!
