Figured I'd ask the important question first!
Now...how did you do with the quake?

The news indicates no deaths or serious injuries.

Property damage and destroyed highways though.

Hey thanks for the concern! We are fine. It happened while I was still relaxing on the couch and drinking coffee. My wife was still asleep and I had to yell to her to get up cause this one isn't stopping! Out the door with the dog too. Can never get the cat out of the house during these drills, eh. It shook for awhile. Once it stopped and I realized that all the local tv stations were down that meant that anchorage got hit hard. And it must have been large because we felt it 210 miles away. Normally we would have been at work but we just got home last night from visiting family in Washington for the holiday. We flew into anchorage yesterday morning. Sooooooo glad we weren't flying in this morning.

I'm working from our Anchorage office right now. It was a fun and wild ride. We were just 10 miles from the center.

Glad to here your doing okay.
