    Wow!

    Engineering and building codes matter. We had the Nisqually earthquake back in 2001--it damaged things from North of Seattle to Olympia--most populated area of the state. I think it was around 6.8. Only related fatality was a heart attack victim.

    But it took a couple of years to rebuild some of the structures. The earthquake retro-fits done in the 90s did their job on the overpasses, etc.

    Get an Alaskan goldminer in there with a big dozer, excavator, loader, plus some tailings and that's what happens. And a paver to cover it up.

    Not a lot of roads here. Makes for a good incentive to get them repaired quickly when it's your route to work, home, hospital, etc.

    We got done with inspections of bridges and the railbed on Saturday. Some of the aftershocks of 5.0+ had us going back and re-looking at some so it took a while. Then we had to rebuild track.
    Sunday night we moved a freight out of whittier barge service - into anchorage. the whittier tunnel needed a little work.
    Late monday we sent a freight north from Anchorage to Fbks.
    Lots of work but we're pretty resilient when we need to be. Fbks appreciates it as we haul most of the fuel used up there north by rail.
    I have 65 hours in since Saturday morning. 18,, 18, 18 and 11
    time to sleep a bit now.

    Ouch!

    I strapped mine to a wall, but I was mostly worried about someone leaving 2 or 3 drawers open, so they are sort of lightweight.

    I'm now thinking bigger straps are in order.

    Huge Kudos to AKDoT, Contractors and Railroad etc. Fairbanks can't go too long without fuel and gas. I think the electric intertie was down too. Our building in Fairbanks is on natural gas, there can't be too much of a supply there and it comes up by rail. It was amazing (and probably lucky) that more structures were not destroyed or substantially damaged. It is ironic that the worst seem to be the schools. Who else uses brick interior walls??? Anyway they seem to be making shuffling the kids around work. Things moved so quickly there wasn't much time for political photo ops even, recovery was well on the way before the politicians got there to 'help.' Nice to see that spirit is still alive.

    If Anchorage keeps it up we may admit them back into the state.

    Pretty good odds for some pretty good shakers in the next week, too.

    Vermont could get that done in five years. Then put it out to bid to do again.
    The state has been paving the 30+ miles of Rt 103, most of the contractors walked away in October but two stayed on till end on November, We had just gotten 20+ inches of snow and they were using brushes to move snow from the scarified pavement to lay down another layer. Right over the road salt. There are areas already failing from the paving done two weeks prior, in the snow.

    ANC Earthquake

    These pictures are from an accident that occurred yesterday. This WAS the Mckenna Brothers nicest plow truck. My daughter drove it for two or three years during the winter. Her former co-worker is lucky to be alive....the guard rail saved his butt. This was a fresh road repair. DOT had just removed the barrier cones...the old surface was slightly raised....the belly blade caught and threw the truck off the road. My daughter tells me they haul arse though this area when plowing.

    ANC Earthquake

    Correction....
    Not Big Lake. Palmer....Belly blades can be fun...especially when slow and trying to cut the ice with a good amount of down pressure....then hit a high spot or are on a barely detectable rise in the road when on ice....the truck bed is almost empty...it will use the belly blade like it’s an ice skate...into the the ditch we go!!
