On Shaky Ground

Ken Dietrich informs me our Saturday morning 5.7-magnitude earthquake made national news. The USGS says the epicenter was 161 miles southwest of Anchorage. We’re almost directly south of Anchorage, about 100 miles.


I felt a couple of small shakes early in the morning while I was in bed in the loft. Then we felt the big one while we ate breakfast.

We’ve both experienced bigger earthquakes, and this one didn’t cause us any alarm. I did note, however, “I hope there’s not a tsunami.” That could be a problem.

Don’t worry about us, though, Mike’s got a tsunami safety plan: he’s got his fingers crossed.
