Rocking and rolling
Well, we survived the our 2nd major earthquake. The first was in Oklahoma about 8 years ago. That was a 4.4, yesterday's was a 6.6. Actually there were 3 major ones (6.6, 5.3, and 4.4), then approximately 18 aftershocks. We only actually felt the first one, but it shook us out of bed. The kids all came running into our room asking WHAT'S THAT??? LOL The power went off about 5 minutes later. It was out all day, from about 7am-6pm. Just as Jason opened light sticks for the kids to take to bed, the lights came on. You could hear people hollering all over the neighborhood, to include ME! LOL WOOHOO!!! It was a looooooooooooong day. Anyway, all is well here now. Schools were open and everything was pretty much back to normal. Some stop lights were still out today, so traffic was a bit crazy. Hopefully, all will be on in the next day or so. Thanks to everyone that called(and left messages), or emailed. Good to know you are out there thinking about us!!!
