You break up with the seasons, not your lover
Breaking up usually means that you and your partner are parting ways. In Alaska, breakup means that the winter season is over (finally) so that the locals can finally do the things they enjoy. We’re not entirely sure what sort of spring and summer activities you can do in Alaska, except for surfing and probably picking up moose poop.
Sadly, spring showers do not exactly bring about May flowers. Instead, locals identify the end of winter by the breaking of ice and the melting of snow. Oh yeah, this is also the time when bears come out of hibernation. Hurray..?
