Gusty winds blowing Saturday in Anchorage and the Matanuska Valley caused widespread power outages and forced the early end to the popular Relay for Life charity event.
After several lines went down Saturday morning, between 70 to 80 percent of downtown Anchorage lost power, said Municipal Light and Power spokeswoman Ronnie Dent ...
Dent said power was mostly restored by the early afternoon.
The overnight cold front dropped temperatures below freezing at elevations of 1,500 feet and above, according to the National Weather Service, sweeping in a fresh layer of early summer snow.
So we've made new reservations for our anniversary lunch downtown today. Try, try again. :)
