  You may have heard the earth moved here last night..........................I'm OK, ................. shaken and slightly stirred.  I was in the kitchen and thought a freight train was coming through, then I gathered my senses and courage, after all I have Crohn's.
 I wasn't nervous but does anyone else's have farts with lumps in them?.......................yes I can here you all say so everything must be normal right.?   LOL.

I'm glad you are OK. A few years ago, we went to visit a friend who lived in an earthquake prone area. The first thing my daughter said as we got off the plane was "I hope we have an earthquake while we're here!" Sure enough, 2 days later, we were woken up by a lovely quake. I'll take my Noreasters any day of the year.

Glad you are doing well and I hope you don't get any after shocks!

Yeah I live in Southern California. And everyone says aren't you afraid of earthquakes, and I tell them all no. I like Zanne am happy where I am at. I wouldn't ever want to live in the midwest or southwest areas. They can count on a hurricane or tornado every single year. Unlike here, I have only lived thru a handful of earthquakes in my life. So over 50 years of living in California only having a handful of earthquakes (all minor) is much better in my eyes than knowing every year there will be a hurricane or tornado. Plus I live in San Diego which has the best weather in the world.

Glad your okay Tess!

So glad you're okay...didn't hear anything about it here but I'm assuming it's because I've been too busy to watch the news with xmas and all that jazz....keep well!

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Yes, I know what an earthquake feels like....and it does sound like a freightrain is coming through....you actually hear it before you feel anything start shaking. It's a very real remind of the forces of nature.
I'm glad you are O.K. It is nerve racking. It's amazing what goes through your mind at a time like that....I was worried about my youngest daughter who was at school...I knew she would be terrified...her older sister was at home sick....And while we're under the table hanging on to each other, we are both thinking of all our little pets....we had hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits,a rat, a lizard, a one eyed fish...actually 2 one eyed hamsters as well among all the other healthy ones....
All the more reason to live each day, in the present, and appreciate every minute and every blessing in your life
