I'm not really in AK, but I might as well be!
Because, it's raining, no it's snowing, no, it's sunny and I need my sunblock, it's windy, so if I bring an umbrella it might break! And so many Mountain Towner's are frighteningly unprepared today. The first man I saw today had a t-shirt on, with a clear garbage bag over top! Many have no jacket OR umbrella, crazy!
