This week the water was out twice, the power was out for a few hours, and we just had a magnitude 5.8 earthquake 'bout five miles southeast, and 30 miles down. It was scary. We get earthquakes a lot 'round here. This one seemed pretty calm, then for about .7 seconds it was crazy! Floor musta shook like 2 inches!!

It always stinks having to wait and see if that was a foreshock or the quake.

What happened to the water and power?

Oh, that's definitely a bad week. Were the water and power outages related to the earthquakes? Do you keep a lot of bottled water on hand for such occassions?

No, they weren't it was before. We keep a lot of bottled water, but not because. In the 90s it happened every day. Because there was more people, the utilities did not have the capacity to serve all the people, so people traded power.

We keep the bottled water because the tap water is not as potable as preferred.
