    We just had a big quake here. I'd say it's at least a 6 on the scale. It was big!

    I've been saying it has been a long time since we have had an earthquake, and that we were due.

    Now, I can only hope it is that many years again before the next one.

    Loma Prieda in 1989 was (I think) a 7.2. A 5.6 you can definitely feel too.

    I hope everyone is ok. :blowkiss:

    Buzz, did your cats act up prior to the earthquake? I've heard animals can foretell these events and wondered what they did differently.
