We're all good, just a massage. Official Richter scale reading was 6.24. It was a bit spooky watching my racking sway here in the warehouse as I was running for the door!

Whoo Hooo

KHud... This one got my attention. I usually pay attention to them, but don't get too excited, I sat thru the 6.8 in Seattle several years ago at a training session while everybody else ran outside. This one hit mildly, rolled for several seconds, like 8-10, then hit hard... that's when I started out of my 2nd floor office. Aluminum sign blanks on our racks started raining down adding a racket to the shaking, I thought it was going to be worse than it was. No major issues, just a good wake up call.

It stopped time.

It stopped the grandfather clock and the inuksuk toppled but Ginger and I survived.

I was on the 4th floor of the courthouse concluding a trial. I paused for the first shake but people got pretty uncomfortable on the second one. I almost felt bad for the guy in shackles. Nah, not really. They evacuated the courthouse so I got to go to lunch. The Brady Building had some cracks in the stairwell but at least this time a window pane didn't come crashing down on the sidewalk.

I had some stuff to clean up on my sales floor. No big deal.

I was building a cabin just west of Skwentna.
It was the first time I had ever heard an earthquake. A low rumbling proceeded the shaking.
The lake had been like glass, but developed ripples, and bubbles started to rise to the surface.
It was very interesting.
