I had no idea someone died in or as a result of this quake.

The only information I'd seen was that it occurred 'along the coast' and a graph shown at the time made it look as though it was off shore.

This article described it as long in duration, which made me think back to '89.

That duration told me that it was bad, even though for me, it was just a few things dropping to the floor.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Paul F! Calling Paul F! Probably working by candlelight and carrier pigeon since there's been significant power outages in Humboldy.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Yeah, it was a pretty sizeable shake! You'd think after getting clobbered by a load of books in 1980, I'd have learned not to build bookshelves over my bed, but NOOooo... Fortunately, it was just a few softcovers pelting me. I sat up, and kept the hardcovers on that shelf while I could hear stuff all over the house falling of shelves and counters and watch the house a tippin' and a tiltin' a bit.

After it stopped, I got some clothes and slippers on, and did a check of my water heater (mandatory earthquake straps did their job very nicely... it was vertical), looked for anything leaking, and did a sniff around for gas leaks. Went outside with a flashlight and checked the house... still on it's foundation.

No power until last night about 5pm... Which also meant no internet since Starlink does require electricity... However, once the power came back on, I needed another unplug-replug cycle and a short wait, and Starlink tracked in, and boom... internet again.

Forgot to mention...

The "Lloyd" building may be fatally damaged... we're waiting to hear. It's a three story brick building downtown, built by Lloyd Bridges, Senior... Lloyd Bridges the actor's father, Beau's grandfather.
It fell into disrepair over the last 30 years... it was owned by a local slum-lord... It's distinctive brick construction made it a visible landmark, along with being one of the tallest structures along that section of 5th street...

The 120 year old Fernbridge is also in a bit of a state... There are some visible cracks that are being inspected by CalTrans... Don't know how that's going to come out, either.
