Big Earthquake

Last night at 3:20am, there was a 6.0 earthquake in American Canyon, near Napa, Ca which is about 25 miles away from me.  It woke me up, I yelled NO! and then went right back to sleep.  I was born and raised in Southern California and have been through many earthquakes.

Watching the news this morning, it looks like there was a lot of damage to several cities around the area including American Canyon, Napa and Vallejo.  Many historic buildings were destroyed, several homes were burned and lots of people have minor injuries.  I have several friends who live closer to the epicenter and Facebook is going crazy with stories.

My dogs are sticking close to me this morning.  Maybe they know something!

Scary! I'm glad you're okay, but it looks like lots of damage in that area. Our animals are pretty intuitive, aren't they!
