In my last post I described the windstorm we had here in SouthCentral Alaska last week. Well guess what? We are predicted to have another one this weekend. Winds are predicted to be 40 miles an hour with gusts to 65 mph on the Lower Hillside and 75 with gusts to 100 mph on the Upper Hillside and Turnagain Arm. Fun.
We were quite fortunate last week as we suffered very little damage and did not lose our power for an extended period of time. Our friends and neighbors were not so lucky. We’ll take all the prayers you can send this way that the storm damage is minimal, as many people are still cleaning up from last week.
And now guess what I’m doing this evening? That’s right. Checking the flashlights and lanterns. Putting anything that can become a missile in the garage. Charging the phones. Doing laundry so we all have clean clothes and checking the pantry.
