    Default Earthquake while playing.

    This is not a joke, although it may sound like it.

    We just had an earthquake in the Treasure Valley in Idaho, where I live. It shook the whole house while I was playing my ukulele.

    I guess you can say I rocked the house!

    In all seriousness, I am okay.

    Yeah! Of all the places to have a 6.5 earthquake, it had to be Idaho! The epicenter was in Challis, Idaho, apparently.

    When I think of earthquakes, Idaho does not come to mind. I had a similar experience here in MA a few years back while lying in bed early one morning, very strange. I thought maybe I was dreaming. My wife, who was still sleeping, didn't believe me when she awoke, even after I asked her if she felt the earth move Later, the local geological survey confirmed it was a small one.

    Quite an experience. 6.5 is a pretty good shaker.

    While we stock up ("hoard") for the virus here in CA, it prepares everyone to be better supplied for the inevitable earthquake and other disasters.

    Yeah, wow! I was thinking the same - Idaho? 6.5 is pretty significant too! Glad you're okay.

    A friend who lives on Nevada told me last week that they had a couple of them within a few days

    Just saw it mentioned on the local news. Felt in parts of southern BC.
