Life In Napa CA – Napa Earthquake!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Well you knew that you live in California eventually your going to have a earthquake, but so soon? This was by far the worse quake I’ve been through, and we lived here in the Bay Area a long time. I’m calling it the “20 Second Cleanse”

Things that you pretty much never use, we will never use now. Yep, all those wine glasses, do you really need more than four? What about that vase, naw you got three of them, oops one left.

But the Napa emergency response was phenomenal, we had power by 1:00pm that day. Very cool and the house came through without any damage.. Ahh, but we did have to sacrifice something to the glass gods.. But everyone is safe and sound.
