Yes I also completely spaced on the fact that the post office is closed for presidents day! I guess that means I can squeak in one more item and send on Tuesday Wink

Who would be happy with an extension to mid February?
A couple participants didn't recieve their LV's until really late so I was thinking about pushing send outs off a bit.

I remember waking up to that on twitter. I grew up in Anchorage, and my family still lives there. I've felt plenty of pretty big earthquakes myself. I am glad the tsunami waves weren't too big, and your family was ok!

Haha yeah I grew up out in the boonies on the Kenai Peninsula so big quakes are nothing new. As a kid we went through evacuations for volcanic eruptions, wild fires,etc. But now that I'm a parent it's a lot different. And for some reason the past couple tsunami evacuations in Sitka have both been in January in the middle of the night  Roll Eyes my aunt in Kenai said the quake was a good one, but nothing broke so she just went back to sleep lol

Being on a boat tied to the dock we didn't even notice this quake. The boat rocks every time another boat goes through the channel.. so when the sirens went off it was a big surprise  Tongue


Oh my goodness, Wildfyre! How scary. Glad you're ok.

Thank you Phoenix Smiley This was our second tsunami evacuation with a LV in tow so once the all clear sounded I was determined to at least get a photo this time lol

We were in Alaska working on the boat for a week and as luck would have it, our second to last night there was the night Alaska was hit with a 7.9 earthquake. So we woke at 1:30am to tsunami sirens blaring and telling us to evacuate immediately. I have a six year old and a 6 month old so we rushed to dress them and run up the dock to the loaner truck we had from the processing plant and drive to high ground. Sitka has roughly 8,800 residents and the entire "highway" system is 14 miles from end to end. Only two roads go high enough off of that to be considered safe. So everyone is headed up those few roads to the same couple evacuation centers. It's pretty crazy. The truck the processor loaned us had bald tires and it had just snowed so we barely made it up the road. It was chaos. We sat there for hours while the sirens blared, waiting for either the tsunami to hit or the all clear to sound. It finally sounded around 3:30 am. Thankfully the quake wasn't the kind that creates a huge tsunami so the wave was very very small.

I only got one very fuzzy photo of Anana on the dash while we were stuck in traffic -


Before that we did some hiking-



Visited the swans that overwinter around Sitka -



We went to the National Historical Park, but -



We walked around and saw the totem poles anyway Smiley



A view of the harbor with Mt Edgecumbe in the background -



And snow..

We ran out the spit Saturday morning to get a photo of Port Angeles and were surprised to find a pod of Orcas in the harbor! They don't come into the harbor very often.
So I tried to get a photo of Anana with them, but it's kind of hard to tell what they are  Undecided Sorry about the truck door, I had to hurry before they went back down.
