The Napa Quake

Best wishes go out to anyone effected by today's earthquake.

Please, everyone, take this is a reminder that you need an earthquake/emergency/bug-out kit! This is true no matter where you live. If it isn't a quake that puts you at risk, it could be a tornado, ice storm, hurricane, or nuclear plant disaster. Everyone needs to be prepared. I'll post more in the coming months on what that kit might include.

An email from a friend asked me if this quake gave me PTSD flashbacks to the Loma Prieta quake, which I experienced. I didn't get PTSD from it--unless you consider housework a trauma. For me, it was merely a big mess to clean up. Yes, I shot out of bed at the bigger aftershocks, but none of that seemed to do me any permanent harm.
