EARTHQUAKE!!!!!!!

Developing… 5.8 magnitude hits LA.

The animals are going beserk (quacking, squawking)  with all the shaking going on.

It’s been awhile since we had a good rattler.  Nerves are bit jumpy as we wait aftershocks (there’s been one already)

    I felt it too! I felt some shaking first, but then a big big jolt, and then a bunch of rolling for a while. And I didnt even have to pay $75 at Disneyland either 🙂

    Hello Dervaes Family!

    Hope this one is over and you and all of the plants and animals remain unscathed!

    Keep meaning to write to let you know how much I enjoy your site. We live off-the-grid using solar and wind here in Ontario, Canada. We too are vegetarians and grow much of our own food. I envy you your climate… your longer growing season…. but we love the peace and quiet and serenity of life up here…

    Take care!

    Oh my- 5.8- wow! I’ve been in two earthquakes- one in San Fran- just a small one and one in Anchorage- 6.0. It’s funny because we never felt the Alaskan one and definitely felt the one in San Fran!
    Do take care!

    Thought of you all down there after watching the news. I pray for everyones safety down there. The biggest one I was in was a 6.0 I think back in the 1970s when I lived in Livermore Ca. Squared the bejesus out of me.

    Glad to hear you are all ok…my brother called me right after it happened nearly hysterical, then we had no phone contact for awhile….pictures fell off the walls, his computer fell off the desk, and his tv missed crashing by about an inch….he was born and raised in Jersey, so this was a little unsettling for him….Im just happy no people or animals were injured that we know of.

    My 80 year old mother was in Placentia, in the grocery store, she heard a loud crash, everything came off the shelves, she was in the salad oil section, glass and oil everywhere! she took one step and down she went on her hands into the glass! Two men stopped to help her, thank you God, a few bandaids (minor cuts) and a Nirto pill for the heart later, and she is fine. In 60+ years in So Cal, this is the first injury from an earthquake our family has had….we are thankful

    Wonderful you all & the life forces are well. Just a broken unsecured wall mirror & cats & pidges un-nerved a bit, otherwise A-OK :).
