yes, we're okay...

a few people have called and emailed to ask us if we are doing okay after the earthquake on tuesday night...and yes, we are just fine! the epicenter was near milpitas, which is about 10 miles away from us. it was a 5.6 on the Richter scale and we definitely felt it. our entire apartment (which is on the second floor with only a carport underneath it) was kind of rolling back and forth slowly with a slow, low rumble. there was no damage and we are all doing just fine. thanks for your concern!

I'm a little concerned about the steadiness of that carport. Hope you can stay free from any more quakes. Lug you.

Can you believe we had an earthquake??! Scary and exciting all at once. That was the first one I've felt. Anyway..I would like to run about 6 miles with you on Saturday. Where are you running?
