Earthquake

I guess we had an earthquake this morning.

I didnt feel it but my mom said she woke up and thought the cat was trying to get into the closet because the doors were shaking

They were just saying on the news recently about the 'big one' coming and where you should and should not be and yadda yadda.. and then we get one. Kinda freaky.

Im happy that you are ok Sicy. Thankfully where I live we aren't prone to earthquakes. Still the thought of being in middle of one is scary

In all honesty, i think out of every 'natural' disaster there is, if i had to choose,
id chose to be in an earthquake over any other disaster.
Ive been through so many, i actually quite like them.
When i was a kid traveling with my parents through some small town trying to get to North Dakota,
a freak tornado came.
It wrapped big rigs around telephone poles and impaled cows onto wooden fences.
I remember we stopped the car and ran to a farm house (yes, i know...wtf?),
my mom had me only by the collar of my coat and i was flipping in the wind like a kite.
Ill never forget that.
Earthquakes are quick, no drowning necessary.
And no running to farm houses where Buffalo Bill lives.

Wow, thats alot to have to be in constant fear of.
Im sure each has its own season.
Cali doesnt have that stuff (some flooding, but Californians dont know how to handle it...you'de think it was Armaggedon), but you never know when they are going to happen.
Part of its charm...
Plus we dont have to come up with some stupid name for our quakes.

Man any news about a quake in the Bay Area freaks me out.
They're long overdue for a devastating quake on that fault, according to a lot of seismologists.

Little ones dont really freak me out but the big ones we've had before are definately scary.

A 4.7 is still a little jolt, if you felt it. Glad you are okay Sicy

Hubby moved some photo albums out of a wood cabinet we have in the living room. Said it would be a safe place to crawl into if we have an earthquake. Maybe my daugther could fit into it, but not me! (or the cat, of course)

Weird, I was at work and we didn't feel anything. And we usually make a huge deal out of even the little tremors (go through detailed building inspections, etc).
