Mid December Update

Greetings from the rocking, rolling and windy offices of Alaska Mountaineering School. We started the week with a 3.95 earthquake centered just 5 miles southwest of Talkeetna. The building really shook! Now we are on day 2 of a brutal windstorm. All of the beautiful snow came off the trees, our ski trails are blown over and the power went out.
Despite what Mother Nature is throwing at us, the fun continues with our annual Christmas Show opening this week–"Xmas and Other Four Letter Words," (it's not for the wee ones.) Next week is the Winter Solstice and there will be many parties to celebrate the longest night of the year.
