Just checking on Alaskaone here ... I see you've posted recently, that's good.

Comment: Part of the present problem in Washington is the lack of compromise. Response: It's always better for the bully when the bullied does not resist, isn't it?

It was a fun ride.  Stuff came off the walls, off shelves.  Car hopped about a foot to the right inside the garage.  No structual damage to my home, no cracks or broken windows.  Kids had a great time.  Cat was terrified and hid in the bathtub... pretty smart for a cat.  A fish left the aquarium along with about 3 gallons of water... found him before he died.


All in all, coulda been worse.  After-shocks are still rumbling through... 5.1 just a little while ago.  You can hear them coming.  Feel the shock wave, even... not just the ground trembles but something passing through... hard to describe.

Hey there!  So glad you are okay.  Damage looked pretty bad from our end.


I was in a 6.9, a 6.7, and a 6.5 in about four days in Italy, then about 300 aftershocks before we came back stateside.  Know what you mean about the rumbling.  I remember going into a store room to get a mop to mop the bathroom floor just before the earthquake hit.  The next thing I knew I was literally hopping across the floor, looked up at the ceiling because I thought something was going to fall through, and watched it crack.  After that, everything went black.


It's quite an experience!

Hey, Skrumpie!


The movement here was mainly vertical vibrations, something most buildings handle pretty well.  Also, we build mainly with wood in the US.  A 7.0 eathquake in China or Italy is a different experience when your buildings are made of concrete or stone.

Good to see your humor hasn’t failed...excellent description! We had a few inconsequential quakes, the other day. Quakes are more common here than is generally known: so much national and state land make up Idaho that damage is hardly noticed. No loss of life, except perhaps wildlife, so it’s not reported, or I’m not reading it. Glad you’re family is okay!

I'm glad to hear you and your family came through this so well.


Still sending positive thoughts your way!
