They are kinda fun, unless the walls start falling down. It is a bit unnerving though!!

We once had a hawk in our patio. I felt so sorry for it. The bird kept flinging itself into the screened windows. We opened all the doors and it finally flew out.

Same here, Sierra. I try to keep in mind what a beautful part of the country we both live in, but whew, what a relief when it's over. Take a couple of deep breaths.

The USGS webpage showed a couple of small aftershocks, but I did not feel them. A large rock fell onto I-80 between Reno, NV and Truckee, CA. (Floriston, CA for those of you who know where that is) due to the earthquake.

Thanks, middie and kitchenelf. There have been 21 aftershocks since the initial earthquake. Thank Heaven, the aftershocks were so small that most of them were not felt.

We've had a few in the last few weeks & another here today. Small one.

Best I can say (you probably know), stand in the threshold, away from glass. I'd dive under the dining room table, but it's glass, as are most of the things in my L.R. Last week my chandelier was swinging right over my head. This bites it man. But, what can we do. Try to white knuckle through it, I guess. Stay safe, Sierra.

Mish, after the initial shock I don't mind the small earthquakes. It is the 6.0+ that I find frightening. It is a bit nerving to find all your stuff rattling or swaying during an EQ. This morning I went to work and all the pictures on the wall in the office were askew.

Mish, I hope that you stay safe also. I guess this is what we get for living where we do. At least we don't have to deal with hurricanes or tornados (I lived in Kansas when I was very little and have been back to visit relatives many times and have been in my share of tornados.), which terrify me.
