Strangely enough, none of that top 10 list would be on my top 10 list! And I've lived in several of those places.

I guess that's what happens when you calculate your list based on statistics.

Consider the source.

This is coming from a real-estate company that does not even have a presence in Alaska.

I find it interesting they ranked Ketchikan number 1 for weather. They must have been there on one of the very few days it was not raining.

I really don't like lists - because what I think is perfect weather, isn't what you think is perfect. I don't mind light rain and a cooler temp. Rather than no rain and high heat. I know someone that loves high heat, despises snow and rain. (He moved from the Mountains to the desert and never looked back).

I agree. Everyone has different tastes.

I am not particularly fond of rain, but I love living in a forest and that requires a certain amount of rain. So I am willing to tolerate the rain because of what it produces. Although, I do miss those big mid-western thunderstorms that would rain hard for an hour or two, then clear up and be sunny the rest of the day. Everything always smelled cleansed and fresh after one of those storms.

This is hilarious. I love Ketch, but the weather sucks. Their criteria must have been the relatively high temps there compared to the rest of the state. Actually, I'd prefer winters in the interior where you see blue skies more often than not than Ketchikan's constant gloom.
