link is working.

Boy, you sure are messy, how do you work like that?

Looks like there was a damn tornado or something in there.

Wow! That’s really scary, I’m glad it didn’t do more to your property and shop.

Thanks for letting me know the links works. Working is a mess, you know sometimes it just sneaks up on you. Anyway it could have been worse. With the open shelves and all those cabinet door opening up not that much fell out of them. Haven’t started the clean up in the shop or shed yet but I think that starts tomorrow.

The best I can figure out at this point I have a mess to clean up but nothing to replace. Yes I’m counting my blessing. Not everyone was as lucky as me.

Yeah, that looks bad. I survived the ‘94 Northridge quake but had to replace 112 linear feet of crappy (not to code) block wall. It ended up being chain link across the back and 8’ cedar pickets on the west. Lucky- I just shoveled up a few 5 gallon buckets of glass and ceramics (my wife’s teacup collection).

I’m so happy you’re OK, AG. You were the first thing I thought of when I saw the map of affected areas.

Now, I’m with jbay… Clean up that mess. It’s shameful. It almost looks as messy as my shop on a good day!!

Makes this Southern Californian think about doing some cleaning up around here. We haven’t had a good foot rub in a very long time.

Scarry to say the least!
It’s more scarry when it hits at home!

Earthquakes, wildfires, tornados, hurricanes, and floods perhaps we need a new place; somewhat less violent.

Quite a shaker. Glad you weren’t damaged personally.
After a quake like this, does the ground that has moved, remain solid? I’m thinking of your deck piers.

Was really impressed with the speed of some of the road repair we have seen.
