a day to give thanks

October 28, 2012

I didn’t feel a thing

we were lucky – this time – magnitude 7.7

no damage and no injuries

located in almost exactly the same place

I remember the 1949 big one

we lived in Terrace B.C., 90 miles East of Prince Rupert

my father was the fire chief, his car rolled down the main street, I was safe in bed

    there have been some tremors felt here as well, glad the tsunami was just a warning! makes one wonder if a mountain top might not be cozy. glad, everyone is well!

      neki – this was the largest since 1949, “they” are constantly warning us that the big one is coming!

      thanks Aimee – the tsunami warnings covered the entire coast, Alaska to Calf. and Hawaii. thankfully it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
