    Cali Quake this morning

    Are all our Cali members OK?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I don't think we have anyone up in that area, but 6.1 is big enough that you start paying attention.

    One of my non-woodworking friends posted this pic on Facebook a while ago. He lives in the Bay area. Most of what he lost was his mother's china. (He's a chef, so it meant more to him than it would some guys.)

    I'm betting Brent and Sharon (and probably Jim Burr) have friends who were also affected. They might have felt it themselves, too.

    Didn't feel a thing, but a few Facebook friends commented on it

    Nothing this far south either. When you live in Cali you just subconsciously factor this into your life but, a quake of that size is hard to be prepared for on a daily basis. When the pantry ends up on the kitchen floor and the pool is down a third because the water's in your neighbors planters, you just have to pick up afterwards. Being a lifer I have tall furniture strapped to the wall, I really do understand what water heater straps are for and so forth. Bummer for Vaughn's friend's china. A quake of that size is gonna rock ya if you're in the neighborhood.
