Is there a snooze button for earthquake?

Rev. Paul said...

Just the general purpose 'snooze', I'm afraid. Besides, it was time for coffee anyway. :)

Puts a new meaning into, "Shake a leg".

Rev. Paul said...

Bravo! Well done, sir!

Old NFO said...

Rockin and rollin eh??? And can't even 'blame' it on anything else... :-)

SENIOR said...

that's one heck of a way to wake up.

Rev. Paul said...

No noisy neighbors or anything, NFO. :)

You bet, Senior. But that's the way it rolls. Heh.

Glad it wasn't a 9.2! I have only been in two earthquakes and I am in no hurry for any repeats. Glad all of you are ok! Scary stuff.

PioneerPreppy said...

Did it look like Kalifornia with people packin their bags to run?

Rev. Paul said...

JMD, no thank you! One of those every 500 years is plenty. :)

Preppy, no. We get so many earthquakes that anything less than a 6.5 doesn't bother us.

Here in Texas, everybody has a rain gauge so you've got a topic for discussion. In Alaska, does everybody have a Richter Scale to keep track of earthquakes?

juvat said...

Glad everybody is ok, though.

Rev. Paul said...

No seismometers, juvat; just thermometers and rain guages. And a snow stick. :) But we've all bookmarked the two local sites which report on 'quakes.

Thanks.

There's just a leeeeetle part of me that would like to experience a tiny shake . . just for the experience.
Am I nuts ?

Rev. Paul said...

No, Cathy, not at all. It's definitely an interesting experience. :)

On a Wing and a Whim said...

Ah, yes, one of those things I can now afford to be safely nostalgic about.

On the other hand, you don't get woken up at 2 in the morning with the tornado sirens wailing, and the cell phone going nuts on "Take Shelter Now!" So, I'm not certain I got the better end of the deal.

You've got better coffee to deal with it, too. Hope the day got better!

Rev. Paul said...

Better coffee: check.
Better remainder of day: check.

All good.
