Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On

From the Anchorage Daily News:
At 5.8 on the Richter scale -- revised upward from an initial magnitude of 5.7 -- it was strong enough to knock objects from shelves, but no serious damage was reported, said Guy Urban, senior watchstander at the Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer.

It's -7 at Casa del Pablo this a.m., but AccuHunch is guessing - again - that we'll warm up to normal (low single digits to around 20 during the days) by week's end, with some snow moving in.

My wife is moving a bit slowly this morning, but isn't as sore as she might have been; thank you all for your good wishes & expressions of kindness. We appreciate it.

You probably don't want to know how flat out balmy it is here, then.

Rev. Paul said...

PH, it's okay. We know it's warmer just about everywhere else. That's part of what makes it so much fun for us! :)

Wow! Was off-line and missed all that!
Glad wife is doing okay.

Take care of each other.

Yes as PH alluded to, it's 70 here where I live and while that sounds nice (in some ways it is) this time of year it just make people sick.

I wish it was 30 outside.

Glad the wife isn't too bad this morning.

Rev. Paul said...

Always, gfa. Always ... and thanks.

Matt, I understand that. The temps bounce all over the place in the Midwest, too, and we always hated it. Things stay relatively stable, here. And thank you, too.

Is Anchorage vulnerable to a Tsunami should one occur around there?

Rev. Paul said...

Groundhog, it's theoretically possible. IF a quake occurred at the right place, and IF a tsunami were traveling northeasterly up the Cook Inlet, at JUST the right angle ... well, you get the idea. Not really likely.
