Justin made a canning jar run down to the local grocer around the corner, bringing back jars on the versatile Xtracycle for another batch of preserving.
We (Justin and I) had just finished unloading the canning jars when the 5.8 earthquake hit. I guess you can tell we are seasoned (too seasoned?) Californians. Justin casually stood there and said “about time!” He’s right! It’s been awhile (years) since we had any shaking going on.
Though we are a bit on edge and many of our animals are a bit unsettled (it’s their first earthquake) life goes on here the urban homestead.
Right now I’m waiting for the water to boil. What’s going into the jars today are homegrown figs and strawberries. It’s jammin’ time once again.
Thank you all for your comments of concern. We are fine, no damage to report, just rattled nerves!
Hope our Southland readers are all present and accounted for with no damage to report either.
