46. Yeah, them were the days...



I definitely get the sand/liquefaction connection - being alongside a creek, my house at that time was built on sand too. A year later I had moved to higher and firmer ground, on 4-Mile Road, off of Hatcher Pass Road - 4 miles up from the Willow side, hence the name.

Living in Alaska was definitely exciting - in my first year there I got to experience that earthquake, at least 3 volcanic eruptions that left my yard covered in ash (and one or two more in later years), snow accumulation that first winter that set a Mat-Su record for the previous 20 years, and a spring flood that brought water up to the front steps of the house.

It was the quite the introduction to living in Alaska.

Actually, it got sort of dull after that first year.
