An 6.0 earthquake,  rattled the house and the rest of the Bay Area for more than a few seconds today at 3:20 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological survey.  It was 6 miles north west of the American Canyon, which is about 38 miles north of San Francisco, just north of Vallejo.

Police just sent this advisory out: ” Hello all, A roll call of all police facilities was conducted after confirmation of an earthquake centered in America Canyon this morning.  All facilities reported no damage at this time and operations continue normally.”

      Nice. A regular contributor who works with someone in the neighborhood, wrote in saying he had asked Jim, his friend, “Did you feel the big one?” to which he answered, “Yes and the earthquake too.”

  2. I thought a neighbor bought some wind chimes that I was hearing during the quake. My husband told me it was our hanging wine glasses in the cabinet.
