    Jed is in Alaska. Not sure what part but I think it is not too far from Anchorage.

    Yes I believe Jed is close by Anchorage! Remember he moved recently?

    The Good Friday quake had hit Anchorage in 1964. The film we watched was scary. Hope all is well!

    Yeah, we were in elementary school* when we heard about that, and our class collected all kinds of stuff to send to the kids in Alaska - we had a picture of a particular school building that was absolutely demolished. That was my very first "OK, there's been a major tragedy - let's DO SOMETHING" moment.

    I'll never forget my teacher, Mrs Ludlow, talked about it, led us in prayer for it, then explained that "a lot of times, we say there's nothing we can do but pray - but here's something we can do...." And she and a couple other teachers organized the effort.


    *Being Good Friday, it was probably the next week, but it was in our "Weekly Reader".

    yeah Jed said he moved to Anchorage in July. Just checked his moving thread in the Prof lounge.



    I have a cousin who lives near there too. I dont know if she is there now or not, she travels a lot and was in Kentucky or Tennessee a couple of weeks ago and might still be there.

    I'm about 140 miles SW of Anchorage and I didn't feel anything this morning - although some here said the snow got knocked off the tops of the trees.

    I've heard that the bridge at Eagle River is down which means the main highway out of Anchorage to the rest of Alaska and the outside is cut; also heard that Anchorage International airport is closed as well. My wife and daughter are in Anchorage getting ready to fly down to the lower 48 tomorrow and they said it was a pretty wild ride. Fun fact - this is the fifth 7+ magnitude earthquake my wife has experienced in her life.
