If one was to live in Anchorage and buy a House, can you install a heated swimming pool to enjoy during a few months of the year or is the Weather too cold all year long for that? Do major Musical Acts come up to play in Anchorage? Is Auto Gas quite expensive because of taxes, shipping charges, or both? What does Natural Gas cost up there (I assume most people Heat their Homes with Gas)?

You can install the indoor pool, as several of the larger homes up on Hillside have done. It will be expensive to maintain, but doable. Currently our gas prices in Anchorage are hovering around $2.40 a gallon and people are a little ticked because we shouldn't be shipping gas into Alaska. Our refineries should make enough.

What do you consider "major musical acts" to be?

Rush has never been here before. I drove down to Salt Lake City a couple years ago from Anchorage and back just to see them. Had a side trip to Montana to drop my parents off at my brother's.

I saw Willie at the Sullivan years ago. It seems they don't do as many concerts as they used to.
