Much of Alaska's terrahbull reputation for mosquitoes comes from the interior and arctic regions, where there are huge swampy areas underlain by permafrost, and the winds are usually calm. In southcentral (including Wasilla as well as Anchorage), they're about as bad as in mountainous areas of the western US. So, bad at times, especially in spring and early summer, and around lakes and swamps, but nothing really exceptional.

I saw a bee and a pair of swans today. I saw a loon fly over last week, did a triple take on that to be sure I was not being deceived, but they are unmistakable in flight. I am surprised that I have not had an opportunity to crush a slow flying behemoth spring skeeter yet, as early as everything else is moving along.

Indeed, it's the one time of the year you can work outside without a shirt on, without Deeting yourself into mutating your future kids.

Just warm enough in the sun to keep the chill off, just cold enough at night to keep the skeeters mostly asleep.

That said someone from Florida would probably be dressed like Ranulf Fiennes, or Roald Amundsen, but I've been getting my dose of Vit-D.

They are not called mosquitos, they're called flying helicopters.
