Millie! I think I felt it too. I'm new to earthquakes and I thought the neighbors kids did something to my house. Oh weird.

I once felt an earthquake in Crete, Greece. I was on holiday and having a mid-afternoon siesta and the bed was shaking. I thought it very strange as I was on my own ;)

It turned out to measure 7.something on the Richter but the epicentre was far out to sea. It is the only time I have ever experienced it.

I hope nothing was damaged in your beautiful kitchen!!

I was in SF for the Loma Prieta earthquake - how many years ago was that? I was remember it all vividly. Ay!

Man, you're lucky. I've felt one aftershock, in the whole near two years that I've lived here and it felt so WEIRD like I wasn't sure if the room was moving or if my equilibrium was off. Not that I want to feel the 8.0 or anything, but feeling a slight earthquake now and again would be kinda cool. Does that make me weird?

I've lived here more than 15 years and earthquakes still freak me out. I was on the commuter train during the 89 quake and it damn near rocked the thing off the tracks! Thankfully we live on a granite slab. When the big one hits we will have oceanfront property.

Earthquakes totally freak me out! The first time, I was 16 and dancing around the room to some blaringly loud disco music. The next thing I knew, I was laying on the floor. I just thought I had lost my balance or something (well, I guess I did . . . ) but I hadn't heard anything (music too loud) so I had no idea what was going on. Then when I tried to get up, the floor was still vibrating under me and I couldn't stand. That's when I realized what was going on.

The second time, I was awakened out of a deep sleep to this horrible thunderous rumble, and for a split second I thought it was one of two things: 1) a jet plane was heading for my house, or 2) the Christians were right after all, and Jesus be comin' down from the sky. Oh well, it was neither -- just your garden variety earthquake.

Fun, ain't they?

Yeah, that's a little scary I'd say. But think about the great weather and all the good food out there. I'd say it's worth it.

I've just read your past couple of posts, you sound like you're feeling a little better. And you seem to have a plan, I'm glad.
