At about 3:50 PM Pacific Time I was in our living room working at my computer when I felt a deep shaking.

I thought it was one of the large trucks who use Idlewheels RV park as a turnaround for large vehicles. Our campground roads are over 30′ wide.

However, the shaking become stronger and stronger and Jan said “It’s an earthquake”.

We’ve been in a couple of quakes before when we worked in Bishop, CA which is on the eastern side of the Sierras, but this one was much stronger.

The quake only lasted several seconds, but it was creepy . . . and exciting.

    Good description….. if I’m in a safe place, it’s kind of interesting…..never put anything on the wall above your bed!

    Whoa! Too much fun!! Tim texted on Thursday that he’d heard of 5.9 earthquake reports in Little Antelope Valley, CA.. 150 east of Sacramento – but he did not feel anything. Listening to the announcer on one of your posted sites describe how strongly he’d felt this latest and he was in Chico. He made it sound like it was unusual to feel such strong quake in the valley region. He also mentioned how a tennis ball suspended from his ceiling by a string was swinging around. I hope there are no more quakes for a long time.. like centuries!!!

    Hi Tom I read tour posting about the Earthquake. I was in a mild one when I was speaking in San Francisco in 2016. That was creepy. I was in the fifth floor in the hotel and I could feel my room moving. I looked out the window and the building was swaying.

    Give Flirt a pat in the head for me.

    In Kindness,
