We have just been hit by a 7.5 earthquake centered about 50 miles from us. It was a big one. It is way too soon to tell if there has been any damage outside of our neighborhood, but our house is fine, we have electricity, phone, and internet.

But one thing is for certain and the fishing will suck for a few days.
