Just When I get Comfortable ...

... then, whammo, a 5.0 earthquake!! Definitely got my attention - and Daisy's!

I had just gotten home, walked Daisy, and sat down at the computer when it struck.

I will NEVER get used to the earth moving!

Ack! I know we have hurricanes here but at least we know they are coming. Glad it was a relatively mild one.

I didn't feel it at all, but that must have been about the time my Talula kitty came tearing out of the bedroom like a rocket and hid under the coffee table, her eyes as big as saucers. I remember asking her what was wrong, it took her a while to come back out. Dang, I can't believe I missed that!

Understandable! I don't believe I would ever get used to the earth moving either! Eep! Glad to hear you're safe!

I was the only one in my house that felt it! I had to show them the chandelier was swinging.

Wow! I hadn't heard about it. I hate eathquakes. I have lived in California for 46 years and have only felt two of them. How's that for being aware of your surroundings? Couse the part of California that I live in usually doesn't get them. We had a bad one once and my son thought it was "cool". 'No Aaron, if we can feel it that much, it's bad somewhere." That was the Loma Prieta earthquake that did all the damage in San Francisco. It's about an hour and a half from here. My stairs were moving! No fun at all.

don't blame you at all.
i grew up in So CA, and i've been thru some where the street looks like the ocean and stairs are more like a roller coaster.

at least you were able to get home and walk Daisy before it happened.

I am glad you are okay. Earthquakes are the most unsettling thing.

That's why you and Jane need to pack up and move to Texas. It'd be perfect. We pick wine the same way.

Tony didn't even notice it! But I did :)
