Rockin' and Rollin'
That's what I was doing Saturday at 2:37, according to my digital clock.t It didn't have anything to do with dancing, either.
I was reclining on the bed and looking out the doors at the ocean in anticipation of a siesta. Breeze blowing, softly. Lovely. Then all of a sudden it felt like someone shook the bed, hard. This bed is a cement platform, not a four legged bed. After the shake came a rumbling sound and then a sudden jerk.
WOW! It was so cool. Since I have no means of communication where I'm staying, it was today before I found out it was a 6.1 off the southern coast of Chiapas and 44 miles down in the ocean.
I'm sure all of you in Mexico must have felt it also since I'm a darn long way from Chiapas and on the opposite ocean. That to me is the truly amazing thing. How far away it was and how strong it felt here.......
Nature at work in another way.

I experienced 3 or 4 earthquakes while we lived in Seattle, and they are cool! (As long as nothing collapses around you.) Hope you're having a great time at the beach!
Nope, nary a thing felt in Morelia.
And we did not feel it in Copper Canyon. But that would really be far away.
we felt it during dinner in Mexico City, and the Mexicans with me were scared to death, probably because they were survivors of the Big One in 1985 that devastated the city.
GLAD TO KNOW YOU FELT IT. NO ONE ELSE HAD SAID THEY DID AND I WAS BEGINNING TO WONDER........IF I WAS CRAZY......WELL, WE KNOW ACCORDING TO RON THAT THAT IS THE CASE, HA.
