... the hour.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Hi - I was at work..being a Californian, it only took an instant for me to realize what it was...just a gentle rocking here but a whole bunch of east caosters were pretty freaked out...I work on the second floor of a big building and it was just a gentle rocking as I mentioned but interesting ;-) We are fine all....thanks J.

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Den, for your west coast perception. Our daughter in NJ called us in FL to let us know about her experience in an amphitheater class ... her very first 'shaking'. From Toronto to Georgia is a large area to feel this tremor!
