    Default Alaska Earthquake Update

    Hi all,
    In case your wondering, we are fine. The 7.0 earthquake was only 10 miles away and shallow. Lots of broken glass and items shaken off of shelves, shower doors destroyed, moved my 80 gallon water heater 6 inches and ripped out one of the 2 earthquake straps holding it to the wall. My daughter and I were bracing in the front doorway and I could see my megatree moving back and forth. Over 300 aftershocks, 3 over 5.0.Thank god for modern building codes. Was very traumatic for my daughter. Took all day cleaning up, and we are still not done. But we are safe. Thanks to all who were concerned.
    Here is a picture of the frozen lake behind my plane all broken up.

    Glad you are safe. It really is amazing that a 7.0 was not that destructive. Anywhere in the lower 48 would be leveled. We used to live in Anchorage and this was like a 'deja vu' moment.
