See that blue square with the second blue square inside it, and a red one inside that?? At 4:56 pm we had a 3.8. At 8:27 pm we had a 4.0.... followed within moments by a 3.0....
That was "fun"..... But it lasted just a bit too long to suit me....
And at 9:04 pm we had a 2.5.
I like the downward trend! Smaller is good, at least on the Richter scale! (the epicenters were 2 miles from me.)
It's been a restful week. I'm gearing up for a visit with DD2 at the jail tomorrow morning, and looking forward to some renovation on my patio this weekend. I have a picnic table to sand, prime, paint, and also rig to take an umbrella.... that will require some hammering and drilling and sawing.... I happen to love playing with power tools. Home Depot is almost as much fun for me as a quilt store. I know, I'm weird.
I'm going to savor the cooler weather (102 degrees two days in a row earlier this week did not exactly make for even tempers around my place). I'm going to enjoy the outside work and enjoy creating a more comfortable place to hang out in the evenings with my family. The patio is on the shaded side of the house in the evening, and I think we'll be out there a lot this summer. AC is not going to be an affordable option.
The economy keeps sucker-punching my business (I lost a significant portion of a client's account today - several of the doctors in that particular group practice are successfully using the Dragon voice recognition program and will no longer need my transcription service - but I will simply be grateful for all the older docs who don't want to learn the new technology and keep giving them stellar service, so they don't even think about changing! :)
I'm going to take my "grateful for a earthquake-ready house" self to bed and get rested up for a good weekend! :)
