I just wanted to let folks know that there was a minor earthquake in the Bay Area on Monday. I felt it. I was in the shower, washing off the sweat from a run on a hot day… yes, naked in the shower when the house started shaking, exactly like what happens in our nightmares (for those of us ladies who are not shaped like Kate Moss).
I quickly got dressed to check it out.. nothing seemed broken or otherwise out-of-place so I just forgot about it. Here is the article for all to read: 3.7 Quake Shakes Northern Peninsula .
All is well, no visible damage to the house…. just a mental change for me.. I will now be showering in a bathing suit.
It must have been a shock. Earth quakes are so not on my fun list. The still unfolding horror on the television from Japan make me scares and very sad every time I turn on the news.
Having been awoken to an fairly strong one years ago, I can recall the shear terror. I remember hearing screaming and wondering who was doing it in my bedroom. When I heard my then girlfriend tell me things were going to be ok I realized it was me making the racket.
35 seconds of complete terror then darkness and car alarms sounding. A flashlight and shoes by my bed every night after.
Thanks for the update that you and hopefully all your friends are safe and well.
glad you’re okay!
