Earthquake! January 7, 2010

Filed under: California Dreaming,The everyday — kcfeather @ 6:26 pm

We just felt an earthquake!  It was an itty-bitty one (the perfect size, really – just enough to feel and know it’s definitely an earthquake, but not so large as to be scary).  Here’s the info about it:

UPDATE: For those of you in earthquake territory, I just learned from my co-worker that keeping shoes under your bed is an important piece of earthquake preparedness. Apparently in many earthquakes, one of the most common injuries is cuts on people’s feet from the broken glass once they get out of bed after the quake (if the quake happens while they’re asleep).

    Are there earthquakes in Cambridge?

    We hope not! I guess we’ll be trading the earthquakes for the very cold, snowy, long winters!

    Hope you all had a merry Christmas!

      haha…we are getting the bitter cold now, so a few earthquakes in warm weather would be a welcome.

      We did have a merry one and now back to school/work. Judy says 10 weeks ’til spring! HNY 2010 to you! (Nate was up at Times Sq., not me)
