Seems to be a big story

Louisiana iris (Iris fulva) blooming in my garden.

4.7 earthquake? I didn't feel it at all. Our house is post-and-beam construction, and generally shifts and creaks with changes of temperature when the sun goes down. It also rocks and sways and adapts to quakes. The Man I Love says he felt it but wasn't alarmed.

He says - It take more than a 4.7 to get him off the couch.

With the party you had yesterday . . . maybe you were just too tired? :-)

Oh but earthquakes are scary. The last one we had were it really has done a great damage was way back in 1991, I think. I didn't live here then but my cousins were and it was a scary thought!

Earthquakes must be really scary! We only get wee tremors here, but the local media makes a huge fuss about them!

That is a lovely iris, very unusual colours, and a wonderful view. But what is that interesting sculpture(?) above it?

I prefer to avoid earthquakes. I was wondering if anyone I knew in blogland was affected.

I was living in TX when the Nisqually Quake hit Olympia/Seattle. My mom called to say, "I'm alright" and I said, "Huh?"

I felt it sitting in bed on my laptop. Eddie did not feel it sitting in a chair in our home office. ??? Earthquakes have a mysterious quality about them.

Hopefully there's nothing bigger than a 4.anything any time soon!
