Earthquake Special

I woke up just before 7am to a few cries from the little one.  As my son and I got ready to walk the dog and the baby, he asked if I'd felt the earthquake, a 6 point something in Marin (across the Golden Gate from San Francisco) at 3:30am?

Nope.  He didn't either, but he did wake up to the dog's barking.  Nothing in the apartment fell. 

And it took me a couple of seconds to understand this sign we passed on our walk.

San Francisco is still standing as you can see below.  Though there apparently was some damage in Marin.

The sun has since burned through the fog. 


  1. Napa, actually. The town of Napa is the county seat of Napa County. Geographically you could say Marin is to Napa, as Matanuska Susitna is to Southeast Fairbanks. Napa is a bit north and further east. In between is Sonoma. Sorry you had such a shaky welcome to the bay area! My dog heard it before I felt it, too.

  2. Thanks for the clarification. It's good to get it explain with Alaskan references. I heard people mention both and found the link that showed Marin. No need to apologize, I slept through it all.
