The National Weather Service reports winds gusting to 131 mph at a point on the hillside above town, last night. Thousands were without power for much of the night (including us), and public schools - and UAA - are closed today.
Trees down, branches littering the roads ... fun and games. Later.
UPDATE: The roads are indeed littered with fallen trees, and power is still off in much of town. My building was dark for most of the night, with the lights back on about 6:00 this morning. Cell phones, landlines, and 'net service from one of Anchorage's two main providers is also offline.
