Gentle Readers and Dear Friends just checking in to let you know that I'm still here. Still working on "ABC Noel" - I'll get a snap up next week.
Yesterday we had a little excitement - two - count em' two earthquakes. Well, we have them all the time every day, but usually they are so small they go unfelt or you think a bus is rumbling by. But, yesterday as I was getting ready to leave to go home the entire building lurched back and forth and back and forth and back and then settled out. It is an odd felling - after a quake - you sort of stand there (or sit) waiting to see if that is it or if that is just the beginning....... so I sat and waited about 5 minutes and then met up with Rico to go home. That first quake was 3.9 - 4.0 in size, so not gigantic, but big enough.
Then last nigh at about 8:16pm the whole house sort of rumbled and then went bang and shudder.... we had had another one!! This one at about 4.1 or so - well that got Smokie yapping and running around in circles and the girls sporadically barking and Pete shaking - again you sort of sit and wait it out to see if that is the beginning of something much worse. Both quakes were quick, but unnerving and both quakes where on the Hayward fault over in Berkeley. This morning the news (and they are always so right!!) explained that the first one was the quake and the second and after shock.... so who knows!!
Thanks again for stopping by - have a great weekend!!
