Land Mass

Just a little trivia that my insomniac mind thought I would share with you.

Alaska is 663,267 square miles.

That is 2.469 times the size of Texas.

That is 4.058 times the size of California.

Or to put that in perspective.....

It is larger than...

Rhode Island
Delaware
Connecticut
New Jersey
New Hampshire
Vermont
Massachusetts
Hawaii
Maryland
West Virginia
South Carolina
Maine
Indiana
Kentucky
Tennessee
Virginia
Ohio
Pennsylvania
Mississippi
Lousianna
Alabama
And Arkansas...

...COMBINED!

You would still have a difference of nearly 42,000 square miles. So, if you threw in another Tennessee, you would about break even.

That kind of puts things in perspective.

Wow!
