We’re Rockin’ And Rollin’


We just had an earthquake in Southern California.  5.4 with the epicenter in La Habra.   I felt it.   Hope all my SoCal friends are safe and sound!


Do you have a 72 hour kit ?  It's a good idea to have one no matter where you live.

It’s a good time to check your 72-hr kits no matter where you live.  Do you have food, water, and a source of light?  If not, take some time tomorrow and assemble your supplies.


Emergency food bars make it easy to assemble your kit.

  1. I’ve got some friends and family out there who experienced it as well! Hope you are all safe!


    • We are just fine and dandy. I felt it but was far enough from the epicenter that it didn’t do any damage. It was not a huge quake likely to cause tons of damage. Of course, I haven’t checked the news this morning…


  2. I have an emergency kit in my car trunk, because it would be awful for a situation to arise away from home. I have decided to start working an a kit for the house, too.


  3. I’m in Apple Valley and I felt it too! thanks for the reminder to be prepared…


  4. Nervous, but okay. Felt a little aftershock this morning. But all of this prompted me to get an emergency kit, so I guess it’s all good. 🙂


  5. We’ve had tornado warnings, so I need to get my kit in order. I know where everything is, but have been raiding it during the broken shoulder episode. Now have to replace a lot of things. And here we have been warned it could take up to a week for rescue, so to have enough for longer than the 72 hours. I’m probably the only one in my building prepared for an emergency, but try to have enough to help out the neighbors if possible. Am also the Citizen’s Emergency Response Team (CERT) captain for the building, so I have the emergency numbers to call to get the electricity back on faster than anyone else in the building. We’re on the San Madrid fault line and it’s been blowing off steam for several years, so hoping it will release enough pressure that it won’t be a bad one. This town is built on quicksand. Reassuring, huh?
