5.4 Earthquake in California today.

Well today I decided to eat my leftovers from Styx, House Special Fried Rice, one of my favorites for lunch today. This meant that I didn’t need to leave the office. So at about 11:30 I went into the kitchen to heat up my rice. Yum! After the rice was heated I took it back into my office and sat down to eat and read my book, “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” by Alexander McCall Smith. It is a book that is written about a woman in Africa which is especially interesting right now since Melissa is in Africa. Well, I’m really into my book and my rice when all of a sudden everything starts moving! About that time I hear Rick Mercier down the hall say, “Earthquake.” Then things really started moving. It was a good one. Our offices are in Rancho Santa Margarita, 25 miles from the epicenter that was in Chino Hills. Located where we are we got a good shaking but no damage. The floors were moving and kind of rolling, the walls and doors were shaking and rattling and my chair was rocking with me in it! Very exciting! It lasted for what seemed like 30 seconds or so for us. Enough time for everyone to get in on the excitement and wonder…when is it going to stop! When it did, I got goosebumps! It made the National News, a little bit of over kill I would say. Guess it was a “light news day”.

About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
