Well I don't live in KY at the moment. I've been in Alaska for the past 6 years and I am just dying to get back home to KY!!!!!!! I was born and raised in the Bluegrass state and it is absolutely beautiful. The people are friendly, the cost of living is reasonable and there is so much to do there. After being out of the state for 6 years way up north it makes you realize what a great state I came from and how lucky I was to live there for the first 25 years of my life. You can take the girl out of Kentucky but you sure can't take Kentucky out of the girl.

Blue, I had a friend whose husband was in the Army stationed at Ft. Richardson, AK. They had 3 kids at the time (another arrived after they got back) and the youngsters had a HARD time adjusting to the high humidity here after 3 years in Alaska. But they have said Alaska was a great place to visit but they'll take Kentucky to live in.

Very true...AK is an okay place to visit but its not home. The weather and isolation are hard for a southern girl to adapt to. I completely understand your friends babies having a hard time with the KY heat and humidity. My hubby is born and bred Alaskan and everytime we come home for a visit he just wilts when he steps off the plane. It gets pretty warm up here in the summer but its very dry. I'll take humidity any day...its great for the complection
