Another Big Shaker In Calif

If such earthquake proofing were as standard as earthquake resistant buildings they would be universal and places burning from a gas leak after an earthquake would be unknown. Instead they say everyone should run about and shut off the gas if they can and it is almost always too late as the fires are usually immediate.

I live on a boat, so there are some challenges there…but I can take my house and go upriver! LOL

Hopefully after the shaking stopped. During an earthquake it’s best to stay inside (Get under a table or desk and hold on to the legs of the table so it doesn’t move away from you!) because outdoors you risk being hit by falling bricks or roofing tiles.

I slept through the first one but the second one was even audible here in Vegas.

The cat poked her head up out of the crow’s nest and looked around. I find it funny because she can be such a scaredy-cat but between the earthquake and fireworks she seemed more annoyed they were cutting into her nap time than scared.

I’ve never been in a big one, but we had so many little “jiggles” when we lived in Japan that a lot of times I didn’t even notice until my little motion-activated songbirds (cool Japanese thing, came in a bunch of different species with appropriate “songs”) would all start chirping.

The songbirds are a few steps above this at least.
