I have a questions for you residents of Sand Lake.
Does anyone live near Four Corners (Jewel Lake and Raspberry)
and can tell me if it's really warmer there than the rest of Anchorage?
If so, about where do you thinking are the borders of this supposed "warm spot"? Thanks!

I can't answer directly but when the wind is blowing the temperature is going to be the same over large areas around the Anchorage Bowl. Why do you think that area is warmer than the rest of the area?

No blueflames50 I'm not sure, I like the rural setting of the Kenai Peninsula but am afraid that it's too far from civilization for my city girl tastes...

If the realtor is referring to local temperature variations experienced during the frequent winter inversion layer conditions in the Anchorage bowl, then yes it is quite possible. During such events, differences in local topography can account for noticeable temperature changes over short distances. For example, the lower lying areas at the base of the Chugach foothills, such as the Campell Creek Science Center area, are frequently known for colder temperatures due to the drainaige and pooling of the cold air coming down local valleys. Coversely, the higher elevations up on the Hillside that are frequently above the inversion usually report temps 10 - 15 degrees higher than those below.

Is it possible that there is something in the local landscape that causes residents to notice this area is slightly warmer than adjacent locations? Sure, it is entirely possible. But rest assured that the difference won't be enough to permit the outdoor growing of citrus fruit and palm trees year round!
