The pattern of after shocks is moving North, getting closer to my are. Probably why Wasilla/Big Lake suffered as much damage as Anchorage did. Palmer, closer to home only had minor damage and didn't loose power. I still haven't been able to contact anyone at work to asses the damage to my hangar other than no one got hurt.Tomorrow mornings commute is going to be a bear. The main highway was damaged and that is pretty much our only route. Then throw in a winter storm warning for 3" to 15" of snow.

Who can offer the best advice on a heater core? Tired of freezing and not being able to defrost the windows in my 86 W100. Im hoping to not have to pull the dash out. On a related note, wheres the best place to get all the window seals for the doors? Dont tell me LMC.

Dam that is going to really screw with things getting all that snow on top of damage already.

What's worse is we are getting that rain, freeze, thaw thing going on. Water flows into these cracks, freezes and expands. Then starts all over again.

Got 3 hours of rain yesterday before freezing temps, now theres 15" of snow sitting on top of said ice. Needless to say, we're at the house for a good bit.

We bought a Honda EU2200i inverter a couple weeks ago and its keeping us warm and coffee'd up :D. Maxed out full load it will run 3.5 hours per gallon of gas. Ive got 24 gallons in cans, so worst case we've got 84 hours of run time.

I put a tach/ hour meter on it and it's interesting the gxr120 engine is rated peak power @ 3600 revs, yet running full load just shy of overload it will turn 4500 rpm......

Bought a 33" snow blower yesterday. Good thing, we got dumped on last night. Got a foot overnight and still snowing her on the flat lands. Up at my cabin in the hills there is a lot more. Need to get that place finished so I can stop paying rent.
