Where did the storm waves that hit the California coast in December originate from? by carbonates Q: I have heard reports of 18 foot waves at Rincon Beach from observers I trust. I also heard that these waves came from the Gulf of Alaska. These waves were hitting the south facing part of the California coastline in the channel between the mainland and the Channel Islands. Was this an example of wave refraction?

A: most southern facing beaches receive their high surf from storm off of Baja. I doubt there would have been enough bounce from the Alaska storms.

Did anyone see the bright red, blue and green light show in the storm tonight in toledo? by Jax Q: we had a storm tonight in toledo, ohio. it came through between 8 and 9 pm. the sky lite up red, blue and green in several areas for about 15-20 minutes. it reminded me of the aurora borealis that i had seen while living in alaska. does anyone know what it was tonight. my children and friend saw it and so did my neighbors. any info would be appreciated.

A: The Aurora can be seen sometimes even all the way down to Mexico depending on atmospheric conditions. "Perhaps it is just a coincidence but I have noticed that if there is a good geomagnetic storm brewing, the lenticular clouds over mountains take on some really unusual shapes and the sunsets and sunrises are supercharged with brilliant pinks and purples." - http://www.spacew.com/gallery/image000650.html Photo: http://www.spacew.com/gallery/image000104.html something like that?

how long do they keep the roads closed in alaska? by ALASKA 2009 Q: i am moving to alaska and for what i heard starting somewhere in septemeber they close some of the roads down in alaska because of there bad winter storms i was just wondering how long do they keep them closed for. i live in virginia and we are driveing there and i guess the road you have to get on in alaska i guess that road would be closed so how long do they keep the roads closed.

A: It really depends on what part of AK you are coming into at. Most of the Highway you are speaking of does close down at times. But Alaska has one of the most Aggressive Road crews out there. Day and night those huge plows are running. Usually after any snow drop of 3 inches and more they are out there plowing within an hour and dusting the roads. I was in upstate NY for 4 years and saw more snow there than I have at any point here in AK the previous 26 years of my life. If you are worried bout driving in, save yourself some road time and get on the Alaska Marine Hwy. They have a pick up in Bellingham Washington, and stops along the way at places like Ketchican,Sitka, Juneau, Cordova. If you are goin farther inland, jump off at Cordova and get on the Seward highway. lol drive strait if you are heading north, take a left at the "Y" if you are heading to anywhere on the Kenai peninsula. http://www.dot.state.ak.us/amhs/

What would be considered high seas on a typical cruise to Alaska originating from Vancouver? by skyalive Q: If we happened to hit a storm, what would the typical wave height be in the summer months cruising to Alaska?

A: Went to Alaska on a cruise in August. The trip was pretty calm, although on two evenings, the ship rocked quite a bit. It was funny trying to get to dinner with high heels on holding onto the sides of the walls. Do not know what the height of the seas were on these occasions, but I was not anxious. Obviously, the weather will determine the height of the waves. The cruise ships are equipped with stabilizers (sort of like shock absorbers) and they help smooth the ride. If for any reason there was a intense storm, your ship would head for the closest port able to handle their ship. Most alaskan storms happen during the winter months. Oops.. forgot to tell you... I recalled the cruise ship had a huge brandy sniffer full of Dramamine available free for anyone who needed a pill. I get easily sea sick but did not need anything on my trip.

When does the winter season start up in Alaska? by Caroline_Driscoll Q: I'm writing a story about an Alaskan winter storm for my creative writing class, but the problem is I don't know when blizzard season usually starts up in Alaska. When is the earliest Alaskans could expect a winter storm?

A: The most Northerly place in the United States (Barrow) gets snow during every single month. Barrow Alaska only averages 45 for a high in July. However, with the exception of the high mountains, which are always capped with snow, cities like Anchorage and Fairbanks have months of snow free weather. Generally speaking for Anchorage, the first snowfall is sometime in mid October, but in Fairbanks, the first snowfall is usually around late September. Keep in mind that Alaska has a totally different idea of winter than you would have, and as such, would probally say that is starts to get real cold in November. The first day of winter is the same everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere regardless of location.

Movie title of movie about family that gets stranded in storm? by T.J. Wolfe Q: Movie title of movie about family that gets stranded in snow storm I think it was in Alaska but not sure but dad tries to rescue the mom and children some of them loose some toes to frostbite. I think it was from early 90's or the 80's.

A: Anything to Survive (1990) -- a made-for-TV movie starring Robert Conrad as the father.

Is the perfect storm approaching? The Alaska pipeline is down and turmoil in the Mid East threatens to affect? by gyorzxk Q: oil production there. Iran may just sit on its oil out of spite. Venzuela's leader controls a sizeable amount of the world's oil, and he is a definite loose cannon. How much will oil prices go up at the pump by the end of the year, and how will this manifest itself politically?

A: I fixed the Alaskan pipeline yesterday. Everything's cool.
