Funny Memes About Alaska

September 13, 2020

How cold does it get in Alaska in the winter?

This question is entirely dependent on where in Alaska you’re referring to. If you’re anywhere on the coast of this gigantic state, including Southeast and the Aleutian Islands, temperatures can dip below freezing, but it’s far more rare. But if you’re upwards of the Arctic Circle in the Brooks Range in the Interior of Alaska, you’ll find temperatures hovering at -25 degrees Celsius during the winter months. 

Is it dark all winter in Alaska?

You will definitely find darker days all throughout the winter in Alaska. Utqiagvik, Alaska, is most famous for the sun setting  completely from November 18th through January 22nd. This dark time is called a “polar night.” The other parts of the state are less extreme, but still only see a handful of sunlight during the darkest day of the year on winter solstice. Anchorage will see around five hours of sunlight on that day, and in towns like Sitka, you’ll find a closer to average amount of daylight. You can expect at least around seven hours of functional daylight each day in the winter in Sitka and other Southeast towns.

Do you get paid to live in Alaska?

Sort of. There’s a program called the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend, and every Alaska resident receives a portion of the profits. The amount every year changes, but it is usually at least $1,000 dollars a year for qualifying residents. You can’t be a convicted felon, you have to have lived in Alaska for at least one calendar year, and you have to be present in Alaska for at least 190 days a year. If you hit all of these qualifications, you can register to receive the PFD!
