    i have heard from 3 others too within the last few minutes.
    all of them said their cats/dogs were acting a little bizarre a few minutes before the tremblor.

    We were walking along the beach at that time and felt nothing. The ocean has been crazy the past few days and extremely windy.
    I think we should probably continue to stay out of the ocean?
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Zero chance I would get in...I just looked at the web cam as well. I am suppose to be in a staff meeting but the web cam is much more fun. I take a 10 min mind break every meeting after 40 minutes....I hate 2.5 hour meetings so I take two breaks and its not so long, lol.
