The news of the quake surprised me because I felt nothing this morning. However I hadn’t had my mug of jo yet & wasn’t fully awake. Hope the quake didn’t cause anymore slide damage?
Slides, road closures,earthquakes, what next? Was there any reportable damage by CalTrans? They’ve been wowrking in that area for a long time. Hold on Big Sur! I miss you terribly.
Felt it in Monterey. If not for Buddah sized belly laughs from my favorite grid-sitter up on the Oregon Coast yesterday, may have been a doozy. The stress points on this East side of the Pacific plate up in Washington/Oregon are holding surprisingly well considering the Japan Earh shift. Guess we all gotta roll with it
I felt it at the Ventana. I didn’t think we were on a fault line so it was a surprise!
