ENOUGH with the earthquakes already!!!



Seriously freaking out right now!! This one was the hardest and longest one so far. I literally ran out of my house, convinced it was going to crash down on my head! Thank God I was dressed.....oy! OK, seriously, I'm so ready to leave now!!!!!

Update: Over an hour later and still feeling nearly constant tremors! Very, very light vibration kind, but it's still freaking me out! I need a drink!!!!

2nd Update: Well, we had yet another fairly rumbly earthquake - enough to make my husband phone home! Then we had about 20 mins of  "vibrations" afterwards. Very spooky feeling. I asked Bella if she had felt it while at school and she said yes. I asked her if she had been scared and she said not really, but that the teacher had all the kids get under desks and tables. See? I wasn't over-reacting!!!! Sadly, more people in the south (near the epicenter) died. I think some lovely wine is in order this evening!!! It's been quite a day!

First news report on the TV this morning was about the earthquakes in Italy. I'm glad to hear you're all safe. I would freak out, too. *hugs*

I know how frightening earthquakes can be: The Loma Prieta quake in Santa Cruz ('89) made me feel very small, very fast.

Glad you and your family are okay.

You have every right to feel rattled! Y'all stay safe over there!

I haven't experienced an earthquake in probably 15 years. So glad you guys are OK!

I don't think that sound like very much fun. Hang in there, only a couple more weeks.

Oh my gosh, I really need to catch up with you! Earthquakes, yikes... and leaving for Germany? What have I missed, lol. Life has dealt us another blow here, I can not believe at times how life can turn. I think it's time for me to do some reading though. Big hugs to you

I know what they feel like and do not like them any more than a tornado or hurricane....bad feelings. Thinking about you and your family.
