Today was a quite chilly one for the 7th day of April. We awoke to a light covering of snow and a real winter look to everything. Fortunately, it didn't snow enough that indicator pole for the fire hydrants were necessary. The indicator poles are needed in the winter so the snow plows don't run over the hydrants when plowing the streets. The skies were overcast and the winds chilled all day long. The high only made it to 31. The forecast is for a gradual warm up over the next few days which will be nice. This morning we experienced another phenomenon that Alaska is famous for-an earthquake. The quake, which registered at a 4.69, was centered about 27 miles from Anchorage. We both knew immediately what was happening when it started. We weren't overly concerned, but in light of recent world events were relieved that it lasted only a few seconds. You can see the overcast skies in the pictures we snapped from the post office parking lot. Maybe we'll see the sun more tomorrow.
