    I don't know who lives where but if there are any members who live out there (or have relatives or friends) - it would be great if you could check in and let us know how you and your friends and family are doing.
    - just saw this on the NY Times front page website.

    Hoping the quake hasn't been as bad as it sounds.... I've never been in one and know it would scare the daylights out of me.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Fortunately, it sounds like it wasn't too bad near the more populated parts of the Bay Area. Hopefully, those in Napa and Sonoma are doing OK.

    I've been in a couple of really minor quakes and, based on those, I REALLY don't want to be in a big one. An incredibly vulnerable feeling...

  3. We attempt to control our world, but then stuff like this happens and reminds us how vulnerable we really are.

    Hope everyone is safe.
