The Frustrating Natural Phenomenon Every Alaskan Has To Worry About Each Winter

This is one of those natural phenomena in the Last Frontier that isn’t welcomed with open arms. In fact, it’s actually quite the opposite – we loath it. Its dense nature makes it impossible for us to enjoy the beautiful views on our daily commute. Plus, it’s nearly impossible to navigate through without gripping onto the steering wheel for dear life.

Need to get something done? Forget about it! You’ll have to wait for the ice fog to pass. In Alaska, dealing with gnarly weather patterns is just a way of life and no matter how much we complain, we have no choice but to suck it up and deal with it. I think we can all agree that it’s a small price to pay for living in the best state in the nation.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
