Goin' north to Alaska...

I was once working on an exhibit about insects, and someone joked "You know what no museum has ever done? A fully-immersive, interactive mosquito exhibit!" To which I replied, "I've seen one. It's called July in Minnesota."

But as much as we pride ourselves on the Minnesota State Bird, the common mosquito, it appears Alaska has got it worse this year.

A winter of decent insulating snow, followed by early spring with no late frosts, basically created bug paradise. The jump start has put 2005 about three weeks ahead of schedule

Colder winters than Minnesota. Buggier summers than Minnesota. Who do these Alaskans think they are, anyway?
