San Miguel Mission who has seen its fair share of earthquakes over the past few hundred years.
We had an earthquake last night at 9:56 pm. It was a small one registering only 2.2, yet it hit with a sharp jolt, making the house groan a little and really getting our attention. The quake was centered only a mile to the west of us in my Annadel Park playground at a depth of 2.9 miles. That is very very shallow and closer than we have ever been to the epicenter. Something like this makes you think. We have been through many notable earthquakes in our lives in both northern and southern California. But the experts say we are long overdue for the "big one" which will occur within the next 30 years, guaranteed. And it will be 6.6 or greater. Are we prepared? No. There is no way to adequately prepare for the unknown. We could do everything humanly possible to be ready, but if that baby were to hit a mile west of us at 2.9 miles below the surface, this blog would be history.
Incidentally, you folks in the other parts of the country can keep your hurricanes and tornadoes, we'll take our earthquakes any day.
Have a nice day.
