You'll surely miss hauling materials home in your boat.

Just think of how much more work you would get done by not having the lumber store so close. Then we would all be put to shame by how much work you would do.

Oh, that one...didn't feel a thing. I was very likely on the boat at that time returning to Ruxton.

How does this grab you...thirteen earthquakes in the Charlottes and Hecate Strait in the past 7 HOURS. The biggest registering 6.4. Now that's a real earthquake. This isn't that far from us.

Maybe there is a big one brewing.

Hopefully all these quakes will let the tectonic plates slide over/under each other without causing a tsunami. I might just be keeping an eye on this lot.

Our house is only about 20 feet above a normal high tide. A tsunami wouldn't have to be very big to clean us right off this rock.

It is crazy how the media get things all messed up, we read the quake was a 7.7 with a tsunami. We sure are glad y'all are OK buddy.

Jim, I think there was a 7.7...several of my hot rod pals up in Prince George had their houses shaking enough to make them run outside.

The site updates every few minutes and the bigger quakes were before that which is why it doesn't show on there now.

There was a tsunami warning issued by the Police...but it was withdrawn after none developed. They always err on the side of safety if there is a possibility of a tsunami. We all know that there is where the real damage can develop.

I haven't felt any of them yet.

But an acquaintance not too far away on Vancouver Island has.

The Hecate Strait and the Queen Charlotte islands (renamed Haida Gwaii for the original Haida natives who first populated the islands) are immediately north of Vancouver Island.

It appears that the shockwave went inland towards Prince George as evidenced by the reports of the 'quakes there.

I've been waiting to see if a few develop down in Hastings, Nebraska and Chattanooga, Tennessee...nothing so far.

You guys just don't know what you're missing!
