Looks like the Major Networks are not taking this seriously. Nothing on the News station but the Aruba murder.

Looks like all clear. So I guess those that hope for California total destruction will have to wait a little longer. ;)

Talk about crappin' your pants ...

I'll be in LA, Bakersfield, Fresno, and one day at Yosemite this week. I am flying out Thursday morning for my Brother's wedding.

Don't need a wall of water dropping on my head.

RBA, thanks for all that work. I'm sure it wasn't easy or fun, but I'm glad you did it.

I felt that quake, but I wasn't sure at the time. I was working late on the fifth floor in downtown SF and I heard some building creeks.

Yeah, they were going crazy on the Oregon coast trying to warn folks on the beach. In Lincoln City they didn't blare any warning horns (Which they should have)

Whoops.

I told you guys yesterday that CA freaks me out w/ these "natural" occureneces! I didn't even mention tsunamis.

I am glad to hear that all is well relative to the latest quakes and the tsunami warning. Scary stuff for sure. All's well that ends well. :)
