When I put on the computer at 11:00 pm, the news from the Associate Press today gave me the Welcome Home to the Los Angeles area as well as this short update.

VERY interestingly, we left Sacramento at the same time a 7.2 earthquake hit in Mexicali, just over the border in Mexico, but it was reported by seismologists that most of Southern California felt this quake, and the buildings downtown Los Angeles were swaying! Wow, we escaped this scare.
Even though I am not afraid of earthquakes, it takes sometimes days to get back to daily life (also having to do with how severe the after-shocks are). And that is when there is no damage to one's house, or worse, bodily injury to people one knows. The earthquake was felt as well in Arizona. The experts say that there is no tsunami expected.
As Associated Press reports, the result of this quake killed two people in Mexicali, caused black outs, and nursing homes and hospitals were evacuated. The first impressions are that about 100 people were injured. Let's hope that this is ALL the news!
Other than that we had a very pleasant time with our kids and grand kids past weekend. Every one was jazzed that it was dry during the egg hunt! But we had 7 hours of rain on our drive back home to Los Angeles -enough raindrops for a while, I would say:).
