Default NAPA Valley Quake 6.0

You all in California, stay safe!

Not sure if the California quake 6.0 is related to the Chile quake of 6.6 that happened 12 hours prior.

Breaking News has a lot if information and pictures.

For any of you wine drinkers!

For those that care, VikingDad & VikingGal are Fine. It was 100 miles north of him. Our prayers go out to anyone affected by the California and Chile quakes......

Default NAPA Valley Quake 6.0

Not me, I'm in Arizona, several hundred mikes from where it happened. So e of us were concerned for our Northern California members.
I remember in 2010 or 11 we had a minor Quake back east, centered in a Northern Virginia. We felt it on Long Island. For about 35 seconds my house shook, 2 pics fell off their wall hangers, and my Dog then(BG-Before Gator, we had Mo( Shlomo) was freaked...

More news on this quake and aftershocks.

Take a look at the embedded picture of the winery building. Now I wonder what is the condition of the foundation and the ground below it?

It's a conspiracy I tell ya!

Anything to drive up the price of wine.
(As if California wine isn't too expensive already.)

Hey all, I have been too busy to be on much (not because of the quake- just life). VikingGal and I are OK. Haven't felt so much as an aftershock. We have many friends who are affected though, most of whom work in the wine industry. Our one good friend only lost one bottle of wine out of his collection but he said all of his stemware was broken. That's actually a pretty significant loss as he has custom stemware (thats wineglasses to all of you Budweiser drinkers) that can cost over $100 each piece . He dais he literally had to use water glasses for wine!

He posted on his FB page a local news video that showed grapes had been shaken off of the vines- which ruins them for making wine for the most part. The ground was covered in grapes in the video. This is right before harvest so it has probably ruined a large part of the 2014 crush. The upside I guess is that many of these wines are the very expensive ones that are out of my pay grade. The cheap wine grapes are grown in the Central Valley (or I beg the good stuff off of my neighbors).

There are only three people critically injured, one is a 13 year old kid who was crushed by a fallen chimney. About 300 or thereabouts injured.

Speaking of wineries affected by earthquakes, a friend of mine has one down in Hollister where the main building is bisected by the San Andreas Fault. The building was built in the 1800's and since then the two halves have moved something like 15 or 20 feet. Here is a pic of the gap in the wall inside that has been created by the slip. Note the floor, and the wall on the left used to be the same wall sat the one on the right. Make sense?

My cat woke me up, and after the passage of the P wave and then the S wave, we both went back to sleep at 3:20 a.m.

i have to get in contact with the Napa Valley wine makers and have offered to take care of any barrels and bottles of wine they need to keep safe!

sadly they haven't called back yet to accept my offer!

but i'm hopeful the phonelines are just down and they will get back to me shortly!
