EARTHQUAKE!!!!


It's funny how I was talking about earthquakes in my post about pro cycling a few days ago, because we had one this morning at about 4:15 AM.  The first (and really only) shock must have been pretty strong as it woke Mary and I up.  Ian and the dogs kept sleeping.  I suppose it's nice to not have an ingrained sense of responsibility once in awhile.

It turns out it was not that big, only a 2.7 magnitude, but the epicenter was only a mile and a half away.  TRI714, did you feel it?

I haven't felt an earthquake in awhile. The last one I felt was crazy strong! My entire bed was shaking. :)

I will leave that natural diaster type to ya'all. The one I have had to deal with all my life was tornados and really we just watched fly by from the trailer park! :)

Jill said...

You should ride your bike to the epicenter and check it out!

Karen said...

That is a little too close for comfort - much like the meth house that exploded 1.5 miles from my house. Or maybe not.. LOL

And, those are the days that I DON'T miss California. Was in the Bay Area for the big one in '89. Good times. Glad you're all ok! But, a 2.7? That's kind of like a massage chair.

I have luckily never felt an earthquake and I can't imagine how scary it would be even a small one. Yikes!!

That's crazy ... we don't get those 'round these parts. Glad it wasn't major!

Enough with natural disasters already...

Yikes! Glad you're ok! When I lived in CA I never felt one. Every single time I left the state for a trip they would have a small one. Suits me fine!!

Megan said...

I think I am experiencing an earthquake probably 5 times a week. No joke.... is that weird?

They keep talking about the "BIG quake" Seattle is supposed to get...yikes.

Lauren said...

Didn't feel it. Fortunately, I was sound asleep. Trying to get lots of sleep nowadays,

That is wickedly close! I remember when I was young there was a big earthquake off San Diego in the ocean - great surfing for days afterwards.

Aimee said...

That is crazy! Wow! I've never been in an earthquake and hopefully never will! I'm glad everyone was alright.

Amber said...

how fun! right? right?

Caratunk Girl said...

Wow. That is crazy.

Barbie said...

That must have been scary. The only time I ever felt an earthquake was back when I was 12 0R 14 and we had the Newcastle Earthquake.
