Earthquake and Yes I'm okay.

Rocking and Rolling today.

10:12 this morning (By the clock on my phone), I'm sitting there on the phone, when da place starts a rockin' and a rollin'


Like surfing on Dry Land man. Lasted about 20 seconds. And I live in a really rather DEAD area for seismic activity, The San Joaquin Valley was the part that SURVIVED the TV movie "Earthquake"... So to have felt that quake here I wondered one of 2 things:

1.) Either that was really close and small one on the San Andreas Fault
2.) Really BIG ONE farther away on the San Andreas Fault...

6.0 on the Richter scale epicenter in Parkfield. Here's the News about it...

98.31 Miles away from me, so it was #1 above we were shakin' pretty good. Here's a map.

I'm okay, I was hangin' ten. It was a shimmy/roller quake, only damage I had was my Trowa figurine fell over on my desk.

He's standing again. :PPPPP

sentairick is no longer an Earthquake virgin. At least you got to ride one before you left.

I'm weird, I like quakes.

But I grew up in tornados, earthquakes are much better to deal with and over quick.

I actually found it fun.. sat in the PSS Trailer and you described it best.. "Like surfing on dry land".

The trailer was swaying like it was on springs instead of it's usual beams. Was pretty fun :)

Not only are they easier to deal with and over quick, but they are far less frequent than hurricanes/tornadoes. (I lived in Iowa so we were close enough to Tornado Central)

Hell, I didn't even feel it. I've been through a few big ones. Whittier Narrows in 87.' That was about a 6 on the richter scale. Enough to scare the shit out of me and cancel school for a week ^____^

You're a good Hour south, but I hear they felt it all the way in Santa Ana... you must have been in a car (I never feel them in a car)

Probably because that would be the time I was heading to work. Good thing I didn't feel it, I would have been jumpy all day.

Glad to know that you're okay. I can't even imagine what an earthquake feels like.

When I heard of where the quake was located I thought of you! Then I thought ":'( I never told her thanks for the songs!!!!" So, thanks. And I am so thankful you are OK.

YOu're welcome!

WE had another 5.0 quake this morning and an aftershock at around 2:30

We're still shakin' but doin' fine.

Wanna know my theory? That earthquakes are really California trying to pull herself away from the rest of the continent and secede from the union.


Glad to see that you're doing well, hon.
