EARTHQUAKE!!

Whew!
5.4 earthquake!
It felt like we were rolling this time!
My pool sloshed around quite a bit and my hanging pots and pans
jangled quite a bit.

I'm a little weirded out by all the news coverage...
It wasn't THAT big, and no one seems to have gotten hurt.
I remember the Lander's earthquake just before we got married... that one totally freaked me out. 7.2. I was pregnant with William during the 1994 Northridge quake, and that one was a little freaky... but mostly because it was at night. I hate the ones at night.

Bill was on the 91 freeway, going through the Orange Crush area and he saw rock slides while he was driving. He actually felt it in his big truck... he was by the epicenter more than we were. He couldn't get through to us via his cell phone, and he didn't like that at all.
He knows how I feel about earthquakes... and he was worried.
I'm getting better about them the older I get.
William was riding to Hollywood Video returning movies for us, and my cell wouldn't work when I tried to call him. He said he didn't feel it at all.
Johnny was out back watering the garden and Alex and I were making lunch.
Just another day in lovely Southern California.
I wouldn't live anywhere else in the world... (except Italy)

  1. I feel the same way. It scared me too but I feel like they are talking about it way to much just imagine if it were the big one. I guess it's just telling us to be ready.

  2. Yeah... I went to check my generator on the motorhome and the water levels in it. It's our emergency vehicle so I checked it all out.

    thanks for the tomatoes! They are delicious!

  4. That wasn't much, but you know our nescasters, we get a little drizzle and it's "Storm Watch 2008". Over coverage, that's what we do in So Cal.

  5. I know what you mean it freaked me out to. I was on the off ramp at Milikin and the 10 freeway. I though something was wrong with my car. I to did not have any cell phone service either and it freaked me out. By the way, I have already had to make another batch of it last night Jen and I really enjoys the bread.
