    WooHoo!

    My first earthquake!

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/...uw11060534.php

    According to the government site, it hit directly underneath my neighborhood just a few minutes ago. It's been raining here constantly for days, so we thought our house was sliding down the hill (common around here), we were SO relieved it was an earthquake.

    It shook us pretty good--enough to wake up the kids and scare the heck out of us and the cat.

    Weird. It's just considered a micro-quake, but it felt big to this girl!

    Re: WooHoo!

    Way to funny!! Only someone who doesn't live in California actually is excited about an earthquake!!

    Around here we don't even think of them as an earthquake until they hit at least a 5 on the scale!

    Well you know, Portland is actually a very geographically hot area for siesmic activity... and is almost as over due for a big one as So Cal...

    Oh my goodness, that is a tiny one! You must have really been right on top of it for it to feel big. I haven't felt anything major since I got married and left the Bay Area for the Central Valley, but I grew up with quakes. They can be scary. Other than being a little freaky, everything's fine, right? Poor kitty.

    I remember the Loma Prieta quake in 1989 -- that scared me senseless. I was in San Ramon. It was so loud!!

    Glad you guys are okay and woo hoo, you are no longer a quake virgin!

    We're just so relieved that the house was sliding down the hill. We ran outside and checked the perimeter of the house before realizing it was probably an earthquake. The kids are all keyed up still. It really shook us. Literally.

    So, are you as sick of the rain as I am??

    Re: WooHoo!

    The first day it rained, I was so giddy. Like, yay, it's fall!

    After two weeks, or however long it's been, I'm so tired of it!! It just poured all day. Well, you know. It was a bit of a downer!

    I heard a 3-way head on collision yesterday outside a Target in Beaverton and it scared the heck out of me. Then a fourth car hit them. This weather has created so many accidents...it's so gray and so much standing water on the roads. What a mess.

    So the earthquake....it was such a relief, when I thought the house was sliding!

    I'm glad your house is okay!

    Today I am completely sick of the rain! The dogs want to be outside but end up soaking wet. Ugh! Wet dogs suck!

    Isn't it amazing to hear about all the accidents? You'd think these idiots never drove in rain?!?!

    Re: WooHoo!

    Any time you get tired of the rain, send it down to me!! I actually WANT it to rain!!

    But keep your earthquakes... its been a while since we've had one and thats ok with me. We were about 15 miles from the 7.5 Landers quake back in the early 90's... that was enough of a wake up call for me thank you!
