All My Bags Are Packed, I’m Ready to Go

Two moose hangin’ out by the fence near the Anchorage, Alaska airport. I really don’t think they are intending to fly anywhere, just in case some might think I’m serious.

Earthquake Rattles Near Anchorage, Alaska

Recently there was an earthquake that registered 5.8 on the Richter Scale. The center of the quake, according to one resident of Anchorage, was 27 miles west of the city and centered 33 miles below the surface. No major damage was done evidently.

In the photo below, it shows the general area of the center of the quake.

I wonder if the quake was so strong that it shook the back half of this truck off?

Alaska – Cold and Snowy. More Than Normal?

Below are some photographs depicting some of the cold and snow in the Anchorage area. Last week I received one report that Valdez, Alaska, a coastal town of just over 4,000 people that sits east of Anchorage, currently has 321 inches of snow. Make no mistake about it, that’s a lot of snow. However, according to Valdez websites, the average annual snowfall is about 360 inches. It’s still early in the winter season though.

And, this morning I heard on the news that Nome, Alaska was having difficulty getting heating fuel into the town because of the cold. The report said Alaska was currently experiencing the coldest winter in 40 years. In parts of the winter, Nome’s average daily high is 5.7 degrees.
