What? Haven't they ever seen Northern Exposure?
You made me chuckle! Northern Exposure was filmed in Roslyn, Washington (I-90 between Seattle and Spokane) where my family and a group of friends have gone camping every summer for 15 years! I have played pool at "The Brick" and had tons of fun in that wonderful town. It truly is beautiful.
Yes, I lived in North Pole, Alaska (just south of Fairbanks) for 4 years on an Air Force assignment with Hubby. I LOVED it and would love to go back. I still remember the newcomer who asked where we went to see fireworks on the 4th of July. I suggested Seattle. It was so hard not to laugh at her... but I didn't.
But back to the topic, I do consider rainbows and the Northern Lights to be blessings from GOD. When someone brings up the point that there is no scientific proof GOD exists, I remind them that science still can't explain the Northern lights or LOVE either, but we know they exist. Some things just aren't meant to be explained.... it takes some of the magic away.... IMO.
