How much sunlight is there in the Winter months in Anchorage? I've heard that the Winter months in Anchorage are killer and only produce a small amount of sunlight per day during these months, does anyone know how much sunlight there is in the Winter months in Anchorage?

It's a bit odd, to be sure. The worst it gets is the sun coming up at around 10:30AM and going down around 3:45PM on the Solstice. Summer solstice, the sun sort of goes down at 11:45PM and comes up at around 4:30AM, but it never gets really dark, just sort of twilight-y all night long. In the winter it's odd because the sun is always in your eyes on the southern horizon, when it's up, so you never feel like it's really "day". In between, the daylight adjusts rather rapidly, to get between the extremes... about 3-5 minutes gained or lost daily.
