When the quake hit we ran outside (tea still in hand), watched the cars bounce around and the wires sway, debated with the neighbors over the size of the quake, and then went back inside. Although the initial quake was pretty scary, those of us who have lived here for awhile are quite used to all the shaking. This is a great reminder for those of us in earthquake country to stay prepared. Last night we double checked our emergency supplies, checked flashlight batteries, and made sure we had pet food, water and extra cell phone chargers in our car.
Those interested in earthquake preparedness should check out USGS.gov for great tips and what-to-do's before and in the event of a quake. Thanks so much to everyone for their concern! I hope everyone else in Northern California is ok- my thoughts are with all of you!
