I'm trying to be creative with my outfits this winter, but I feel like I keep falling into the rut of tights/blazer/dress/skirt. Maybe I wear way too many nature-inspire colors? At least if I wore some neon colors it would be a lot easier to find me in the snow.
The Tsunami warnings have been going off all night long, there was a 7.7 earthquake over in British Columbia a few hours ago. Obviously, Fairbanks is in no danger of a tsunami unless we're talking 2012 sized ones, but after years of living in Seward, those warning still make me a bit edgy and nervous.
Seward is a little town along the coast and every day at noon the Tsunami siren would go off. In 1964 a 9.2 earthquake struck, setting off a tsunami that destroyed much of Seward and several coastal communities. My dad remembers being just a little boy and watching all of the bookcases falling over in the house but being a few miles up the road he didn't experience the tsunami. When I was little my godparents would tell me about running up Mt. Marathon and watching the waves coming in, seeing the dock pilings being torn up like twigs and the huge fireballs that went up as the gas station was crushed. It's always very sobering to see the warnings, especially after seeing the tsunami that hit Japan and the 2005 tsunami, you just never want to see that level of horror and destruction again.
So to everyone along the Alaskan and British Columbian coast right now, take care.
