~JUST A QUIET EVENING AT HOME...THEN...~
An odd sort of evening...I want to change my post...get on to something else..Then...the earthquake hit!
I was sitting at my piano playing taking a little break from the computer when suddenly Mele began to bark frantically..I kept playing and then it hit! It was a 4.7
I yelled for Howard and dashed into the family room..Mele right behind me. The fact that I could run through a room is always a good sign. I have been thrown from one side of the room to the other in some quakes. Yes, I have gotten in doorways...not this time. I ran!
Earthquakes unnerve me. Completely. I was born here and gone through many worse than this trembler...but for some reason they really do shatter my nerves. I simply CANNOT be blase' about them!
On Saturday I did go to the Riverside Home Show...took three pictures and the camera said it was full. I just stood there stunned...so...I put my camera away..and that was that. Oh...well..yes, I did look inside as it has a SanDisk...but I had left it home and the camera was full. Oh well.
I think I will give up on trying to do a post tonight...a cup of hot herbal tea and I am off to bed. To sleep...I am not sure. No loss of electricity..the news was still giving reports when we shut it off. No immediate damage was reported but there will be lots more in the morning. I will get a report in the morning. I hope no one was hurt.
It amazes me how animals sense them..hear something...actually...Mele knows lots more than I do. You wouldn't believe it if I shared it. ~smile~
Love and hugs~
