I’ve had a few people email me so I’ll just update here. Alaska had a 7.0 earthquake today. It was fairly close to where I live. Being a night owl, I was asleep but was woken up to the violent shaking. It’s one of the biggest ones I’ve felt. I have not inspected the house for new cracks yet. (Last year that one cracked a window and a wall.) There was initially a tsunami warning (which would not directly affect me) but it was removed (they usually are). Some stores have had to shut down due to damage (product falling off shelves). This is all typical for us. But… the epicenter was right at Anchorage, which is where the majority of people live in this state. I’ve contacted a few people and I’m hearing of very messed up houses and loss of power.
So: I’m doing fine. But there’s quite a mess up here. Ahhhh the Alaska life. And to those of you who reached out to me, thank you. So much. You have no idea what it means to be thought of.
