Sunny day in Petersburg, AK

Petersburg is a fishing village in Southeast, Alaska. Located in the Tongass National Rainforest, the island town get’s more than 190 inches of annual rainfall, and 70 inches of snow a year (compare that with around 40 inches of annual rainfall in both Seattle and Portland). Even in the summer, most days the 2,000-person town sits beneath a heavy layer of clouds. When the sun finally did come out this summer, people where positively overjoyed.
