Seattle/Tacoma Washington Earthquake

Kingston/Indianola Washington Earthquakes

Today I got up as usual and turned on the news to find out that we had one earthquake early this morning. Then I got on the computer and found out we actually had two. They were practically right out my window and I didn't even budge, didn't even stop in mid-snor to wonder what was going on, probably didn't even turn over!! Not even my dogs woke me up! Yet on the news I heard lots of stories about people waking up and what they saw and heard as the earthquake went through the ground. Oh, well!

Initially we were interested in info abaout the earthquake. We enjoyed reading your blog and viewing your photos. Trout LAke WA residents currently living in Alexandria VA while working for the feds in DC. Only another year of East coast living and then we're headed back to our mountain cabin. Have been thinking about raising a couple of goats when we return and was glad to see yours enduring the Christmas snow. Hope your back is better.
