Being both born in California, Roxane and I have been through countless earthquakes, but when you are in the middle of one, there is a no more helpless feeling.
It is not what is happening at the very moment that gets you, it's the thought that "It might get bigger or worse!"
Last night we were awakened by our bed shaking like a bowl of jelly, and after riding it for awhile, correctly called it as a 5.0 on the Richter scale...take a look.

This one was only 35 miles off the Coast...probably the closest we have ever been to an epicenter. luckily it wasn't a 6.0 or 7.5.
Also, this one only did small and steady shaking, not the huge back and forth movements that we have experienced in our life.
The upshot of the whole thing is to make you very aware of just how powerful Mother Nature can be.
