    gcvmom Here we go again!

    I nearly got knocked off my feet! We just had a 3.8 earthquake with the epicenter about a 1/2 mile or so from my house!

    The floor felt like it rose up, slanted, then slammed down. It thought I was on a boat! Almost fell down. Sounded like a train hit the house.

    No damage, but we're all a little rattled! :surprise:

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    Are you sure it wasn't the Burrito!

    1/2 mile that is pretty close even with a small one like that! Isn't it funny how you kind of get used to them? Or I did at least living SFO.

    Glad you are OK. Hope the rest of the area is.

    I felt it (as I was typing out an order to bind someone's earthquake policy LOL

    But is was very very gentle up here - My desk sort of slid back and forth twice (thanks to laminate floors) and that was it - Dan didn't even feel it - I checked on line and it was a 3.5 - only a pfffffft as far as it goes LOL


    We are due...

    Glad you're ok. 1/2 mile is pretty darn close.

    Marcie...too ironic. Typying an earthquake policy during this? Oh, my.
