Hope all of the members in that area are doing well. You are in my prayers.

    Rattled

    Yes, he was rattled by the 6.9.  Knocking things over and opening drawers. 

    Did you feel it, Dave? 

    I know we have other S. Cal members, hope all is well.

    My sister lives there. She

    My sister lives there. She was rather shaken up. Not literally. I can't imagine. Here in Alberta we get cold winters but we never get weird things like earthquakes and rarely get tornadoes and if we do, they're just little ones.

    That second one rocked and

    That second one rocked and rolled, and rolled. I was up with mom in her manufactured home and it kept moving for almost a minute. She wondered if we should duck under the table, but those things are built so well, tied with all kinds of metal strapping [I just demo'd a similar model], plus there's no heavy materials in the roof and ceiling, besides maybe a big fan/light to come down. Anyway, it was a ride, but no damage that I've heard of here. Just another reminder of where we live and the need to be prepared, which I very well am...........................................................Dave
