scuba - the local news here in Columbus is full of stories about calls to local law enforcement about the shaking this morning HERE IN OHIO. Must have been pretty cool there. (The Otters felt nothing)


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

Very weird! All of the closed doors in our house were rattling, and it woke the hubby and I up. We just sat in bed, asking each other - what just happened? All 3 kids slept right through it, though!

A 5.2 is considered a good sized quake - even to us former Californians.
The best thing about an earthquake is that is it over by the time you get scared. That's why some of us prefer them over floods and tornados that keep you in fear way too long.

What's interesting about this is that today, it has been exactly 102 years since the San Francisco 1906 Earthquake.
