  • Just had a nice little earthquake here. Had a few things get toppled over. Preliminary reports are 6.1. We'll see what the final one was. Haven't heard of any injuries caused or anything like that.

    Article with a slideshow of images where some minor damage occurred. Still hearing no serious injuries or anything

    For Palmer artist Michelle Hotchkiss, the temblor caused a major setback on a big project. She was in the middle of having some of her pen and ink drawings laser-engraved into a custom tabletop when the quake it.

    “It caused the laser to jump around and now the swans, mountains, grass and baby moose are all blurry on the right sides,” Hotchkiss wrote in an email. “We will have to sand the entire piece of wood down to erase the engraving and start all over.”

  • Earthquakes are scary business. Did you get under a table or into a doorway? Is that even still what you're supposed to do?

    It is what you're "supposed to do" but I've never been one that enjoyed standing around looking stupid. After all my years living here, I just kind of roll with it (bad pun). There is a picture in the link above of some kids that appear to be at school (maybe in the library) all under tables.

    This one seemed particularly long in comparison to many I've felt, and one thing I've noticed, the longer they go on, the more that we will question if it is the "big one".

  • That one we had in 2001 in Seattle, better believe I hid under a table.
