Yeeks!! Funky green sky...have to hide in the bathroom....sounds like a freight train...maybe earthquakes aren't so bad after all. Werner and I were talking, and we both think another quake could happen here again soon. We're hoping people will take the next tsunami warning seriously, in spite of the fact that last night's warning was cancelled.
Winney, there WAS a tsunami warninglast night, June 14, for all of the West Coast, clear up into Canada; the reason was that there was a 7.0 earthquake in the ocean near Crescent City, which town, if you didn't know, was inundated by a tsunami some years back. It was cancelled a while later.
YIKES !!! That's very close to home ..how close is the ocean it to your house ?
You know...a few years ago we had a pretty long and strong earthquake here in Oregon, we were living in Gold Hill. In all my years of living in Ore. I have NEVER felt an earthquake here til then. Times are a changing .....
I do believe the Cascade range of mountains can blow anywhere at any given time, we have heard it is over due...oh well.. nothing I can do about it.eh? Keep making them bears...
I have been in many earthquakes in California and was terrified, however living here is not as bad because we do not have so many people and cars, etc. We already stock up on food and have a network of friends.
If there were an emergency here we are better able and ready to depend on ourselves....that is unless a whole mountain near us blew up and spewed its leathal ash around...we just are not in control here at all, anywhere you go disaster can strike ...so just calm yourself Winney....OK.....Winney is OK now....
My Mom and Dad were in San Luis Obispo last night and were driving down highway 1 to San Diego when they heard the warning. They called me to tell me about it, but I didn't answer.. (i was watching a movie) so she thought she'd let me sleep 'cuz if the tsunami hit L.A., I'd die in my sleep! My Mom is too crazy.
We get to live a little North of Crescent City- And go there often because my hubbyhoney's favorite rice isn't available anywhere around here. It is really eye opening to see the high water marks on the buildings, and realize the awesome destructive power that a tsunami can have.
In college in Hawaii, north shore, they had us leave quick clothing and shoes and socks at the foot of our bed, so that we could get dressed and go if anything ever happened....never did.....
welll except for the geckoes
and the cockroaches
hated those cockroaches
I thought they would carry away the building
until my uncle came family came to visit from Huston-we-have-a-problem-Texas.....
Sue Ann you folks in Texas need to stop feeding your cockroaches steroids!
They opened their suitcases and at least one would crawl out every time.!
does everyone have the feeling like they are crawling somewhere too close?
Like the border is too close for me!:lol::lol::lol:
Double EEewww :P
I lived in Houston whilst doing grad studies at Rice. I used to find hugeous
roaches napping in my ammonia-soaked mop!!
What really got to me, though--one night I woke up to a buzzing sound, and realized that the beasts could FLY. More than I ever wanted to know!!
Hi Terri.. Sound like there was 2 diffrent earthquakes...from the above posts... This whole west coast line from Mexico to Alaska presents a problem..I don't love earthquakes !
Hey Teri you live in Brookings, is there any chance of you coming to the meeting we are having ?...it's only for about 2 hours but I would love for you to come if you can....Winney
