A few people have called saying they read in the newspaper (on-line) that there was an earthquake in the Bay Area. Yes, but as you can read it is classified as a “mild” or “light” quake coming in at only 4.4-4.6 on the Richter scale.

Some people remember the Big One in 1906 or more recently the big LA earthquake in 1990. This one was not nearly as intense. I was in the kitchen making dinner and didn’t feel it, but ChipMonkey was in the bedroom and said the bed shook and the cats scurried about.

Everyone is safe; us locals ride out earthquakes like surfers ride the waves. It’s all part of the local ambience and flair!
