Hauʻoli Makahiki Hou, everyone!
Hi JimE .... as soon as I heard the news I thought of you. That epicentre was a bit too close for comfort. I've experienced 2 earthquakes but both very minor. One was in France .... during the night. It really felt as if all the bed legs left the floor. Scary experience.
I see several roads have been just ripped apart in Alaska. At least it hasn't killed lots of people. Shame about your pictures coming off the walls. Tidy up time.
Oh, and MD the epicenter was just about under my house. I was laying on the bed watching TV, drinking my morning coffee when I was launched off to the floor. Quite an awakening. Pretty hectic day yesterday with everyone wodering what to do and how to do it! Going to be really sad when the day comes with a real disaster!
Anyway, the latest from here in eagle River AK is that we all survived a major earhquake up here without any loss of life! Major damage to structures and roadways. Here in the house I lost a lot of pictures off the walls and locally carved ivory pieces. No structural damage to the house however. Most local retailers have shut down for a few days for cleanup. The highways are mostly open with a few delays and detours. Some of the bridges have been compromised also leading to the detours. We are still experiencing aftershocks, in fact as I type we are rolling through another one. I expect this to continue for weeks to come. That's my report.... for now!
JimE ....... did you feel any of this?
Hi JimE ..... that would surprise them! :D
Maybe I'll stop in and have a little chat with the on site manager in January. Who knows what I'll do!!
Hi JimE .... I think it needs better cams ..... a bit blurred ........ but I can still watch it for ages. :D
Wish they had better cams or cleaner lenses!
Man, never get tired of watching this cam. I'd love to visit here someday...
Ahh, nice here.
Jime ..... at least you didn't have to pay full price. I feel robbed. LOL!!!!
Yes MD all the planning and looking forward all for naught! Cest la vie....
Oh Jime ...... I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope your travel companion is recovering.
I got to Spain and then got that Aussie flu. I was in a 4 star hotel with everything included .... including drinks and bar snacks ...... and I was too ill to eat. Never got to Barcelona. As you say ... there's always next year but it's such a let-down.
Alas, JimE did not make it to Kauai this year for his annual vacation. He was on his way and was travelling through the Seattle airport, when his travelling companion had an unfortunate accident with an escallator! Her pull along travel bag somehow got tangled behind her and pulled her down backwards onto the steps. 911 was dispatched and the airport police also intervened. Off to the hospital in the ambulance we went. She had some pretty severe gashes on her hand, side and the back of her head. Oh, her thumb was also broken. Further medical tests necessitated an overnight stay at hospital. Upon release we decided to return to Anchorage instead of plowing on to HI. The Property Rental folks in HI and Alaska Airlines were most accommodating with us. We only lost two days rent on the house (they were able to rent it for 12 days out of the original 14 I had requested) and Alaska Air refunded all but the travel to and from Seattle. A hectic couple of days in Seattle I care not to repeat any time soon. Oh well, there's always next year! I knew something like this was going to travel when I left my straw hat in the Motor Home when we winterized it for the season!! The saga continues....
Has anyone seen Jime?
looks quiet windy! wonder if it is always this windy in this area.
Hi Jime ..... have a really good time ...... you lucky devil! :D
