Woke up at 3:21 AM to a fair amount of shaking lasting about 15 seconds. USGS maps show it to be a magnitude 4 earthquake where I am, but over in Napa the reports are of a magnitude 6 shaker. No damage here at my house, just some dishes rattling but nothing fell down. People in Napa where Sweetie lives reported refrigerators moving and things falling. Fortunately no injuries reported.

So now I'll try to go back to sleep. I'm on schedule to work today at a winery closer to Napa than here. We had lots of bottles of wine on shelving, hope we don't have a huge mess to clean up.

Update at 7:30 AM: More reports from Napa of four or five homes destroyed by fire after the earthquake, and several others damaged by the shaking. Some brick or masonry walls tumbled, one from a third floor corner of a brick building. Several small aftershocks have already happened. Thousands of people without power and water. Most injuries reported are minor except for a broken hip and a heart attack. Shows the difference between a 4.0 and a 6.1. Where I am it is estimated at a 4.0. There was lots of shaking, some of it pretty hard but nothing broke at my house. In Napa where it was rated at 6.1 the damage was much more severe. Still, not near as bad as the Loma Prieta (near Santa Cruz) 6.9 earthquake in 1989, resulting in 63 deaths.

No matter where you live there are uncontrollable risks. We don't have tornados, hurricanes or huge snowstorms here and lightning strikes are rare. We just have shaky ground and lots of marijuana grows, which stink and need lots of water that we don't have because of drought conditions. Marijuana growers have been stealing water from farms and small towns to grow their weed. All you have to do is follow the money. We don't need water for people or farming as long as we can light up our weed! :weed:
