Whole Lot A Shakin' Going On!

Hey everyone, l have to say that 
I felt my first earthquake on 
Saturday night!  I first thought
that my hubby was shaking my
chair, because he was leaning
on the back of it, but he said 
wasn't doing it and then the 
floor lamp was shaking, too. I 
told him I thought we were 
having an earthquake and then
I could hear the house making 
a creaking noise......Our house
is brick and on a cement slab and
I am glad that we don't live close
to where the center was! Yup,it
was a 5.6....Earlier in the day, 
there was a 4.7, but we didn't 
feel that one. I heard on tv that 
you have to have an 
earthquake rider on your home 
owners insurance, or it won't pay
for damages.....I think I will give 
them a call to find out.....I can tell
ya one thing, I am not moving to 

I was down to Texas, last week 
so I didn't get the kitchen 
finished, but I should be able to 
get it all done, this week, if the
weather is good, it is supposed 
to rain for the next couple days.

Well, I have other things to do, 
so I better get with it.

I hope you all have a great week!

  1. I was born and raised in California and I do NOT like earthquakes. I sat through some doozies growing up. One I will never forget is when I was in grade school and my mom and her friend were outside in the garden. They said the ground looked like ocean waves! Even though I hate quakes, I would have loved to witness the ground moving like that. The ones I hated most were at night that we woke up to. It was impossible to fall back asleep when it was over, wondering if and when the aftershocks would happen.

    I live in Colorado now and I have never felt one here, but quakes can happen anywhere.

    Hope ya don't have anymore!

  2. Love the title Karen, I have been singing oldies ever since Saturday night, like
    * I feel the earth move under my feet *


  3. Scary for sure! But I'm sure you're relieved all is still in the same place!

  4. Oh my goodness, Karen, I would have been terrified. My sister lives in California, not to far from San Fran and it scares the jeebers out of me. I'm glad you weren't near the center and you all were all right. We had one tiny earthquake here in the midwest and it was a shock. None of us had ever experienced one before. It was fairly short lived, but I sure didn't like feeling the ground rumbling beneath my feet.

  5. I'm sure it was a bit scary Karen! but I bet you're glad it didn't last long!
    Thanks for stopping by! BTW, I'm so jealous that you won that gingerbread man!!! LOL


  6. OH Karen I have to giggle about the earthquakes. I lived in San Diego a few years back. When I first moved out there..I was "told" San Diego doesn't have earthquakes. Yea..I was a bit niave! We actually had two while I was out there...I didn't even notice either of them!! One however was right after I'd dropped my boys off at the airport. I called them to see if they felt it..they both just thought it was a plane taking off, lol! However they ended up spending quite a few hours waiting for the plane to finally take off!!!

  7. Oh Karen, wasn't that the craziest thing ever?!?! I have been freaked out all week and just now starting to settle down. I know I never want to experience that again, that's for sure!

  8. Oh my,I'm sure that was very unsettling! Glad you didn't sustain any damage - good thing to look into that insurance....ya never know.....


I love reading your comments, it makes my day!
Please stop by often.
