Thanks gang, for reading. Politics has a way of pushing 'real news' out of our view.
I'll be glad when this election is history.
AK will have much to do, especially now that the ground has already re-frozen. winter is not the ideal time for major road repairs, not to mention broken plumbing, heating systems etc. I'm trying to find out if the house I just left (outside of Fairbanks) is still standing, as my former neighbors took over the lease after I left there. A 5+ quake shook it really hard a year ago, and it is on stilts, in permafrost soils that freeze solid about mid-October.
