From cousins recently moved to near Anchorage

We feel blessed. First we heard the freight train coming. And we knew. Then the world shook, seemingly for ever. Lights off. Things crashing off walls and cabinets. We just froze like dummies. Should have ducked undercover. All our utilities restored by mid-afternoon. Local tv saying the stringent construction codes have paid off as less structural damage than 1964. Our house built 2011. It was a big experience. Learned a lot. It was so violent even long timers had not experienced such.
