Folks who live in the wilderness areas have chosen to endure stuff that us urban and suburban dwellers never have to concern ourselves with
...though in thinking about it, they don't have to endure a lot of shit that we face every day!

When watching Alaska: The Last Frontier I always wondered why the people had freezers?.....Isn't it colder OUTSIDE than in a freezer? All they would really need is a strong shed to store food in right?

Where I grew up alot of houses have what are called root cellars which are nothing more than a big deep hole in the ground that stayed cool in the spring and summer (perfect for onions and potatoes and such) and doubled as fridge/freezer in the winter. You can bet Alaskan homes have these as well.

I was just in Galena and it was 90 degrees. It's summer at the moment.
