….We were having a nice comfortable, relaxing evening just a little while ago. I was getting my back rubbed, watching some TV, surrounded by all good things when all of a sudden the floor starts to shake and shimmie, the house starts making unusual noises, the cat goes flying across the floor – yes, I did not see one paw touch the carpet, all of this happened in a span of 8 seconds. I think it was around the 6 second mark that it connected in my brain that we were having an earthquake, and of course by the time R and I got into action by the mere act of standing up, it was over. WOW R said, that’s the biggest one I’ve felt so far. I immediately turned on my laptop and went to the favorite “Resent Earthquakes in Southern California”, they haven’t yet dedicated a site called recent eq’s near Jude, I’m figuring it might take another year for that to happen. Looking at the map I saw this fkn big red square covering half of California, then when I did a close up it was really just covering a small portion of San Bernardino. 5.0 on the kiss your butt scale. Just a small one, about 50 miles from us but big enough for two Jersey girls to walk around for 5 minutes afterwards in circles. See, we’re use to snow storms, ice in all forms and bugs that eat the leaves off of trees, not these foot massages or in my case butt rub. All is back to normal now, the cat has landed and R is sound asleep on the couch. Guess the back rub session is over, well, maybe later…..
