We had an earthquake this afternoon (3.4). The epicenter was 2 miles from Pacifica. I was sitting on the front porch with the Little Dog when the house skipped to my Lou a couple of times. The second skip may have been more like a curtsy. Then, there was the characteristic boom I’ve become so familiar with after the quake.
Now, here’s the dumb part (and you knew it was coming). I ran back inside the house. Yeah. Instead of staying outside, where you’re supposed to be when a quake hits, I ran back inside the house just in time for the electricity to go out. It stayed out a couple of hours, and then came back on. Now, it’s out again. It went out around 1:30am. I’ve dialed PG & E in the dark, pushed some buttons, and hope I’ve reported the outage.
This is weird too. When I look at the USGS earthquake map it looks like there was the 3.4 quake, a 2.4 quake, a 2.2 quake – all with an epicenter 2 miles from Pacifica. I can’t figure it out. I’m too tired.
Note to self: When the electricity comes back on tomorrow, figure out how to turn the beeper off my battery backup. (Sounds like a freaking alarm clock in here)
