If the house is a-rockin', don't come a-knockin'

Ok....that sounds appropriate. I'm saying this because we have felt three earthquakes in the last few days and it's starting to freak me out!!! The epicenter of the earthquakes have been southeast of Calexico, so a little ways away, but still scary. I keep checking the US Geographical Survey and there have been over 30 earthquakes in that same spot since Friday! Most of them are smaller, but quite a few have been over 3.0 and the ones we have felt here have been 5.0 and 5.1. I told my sister who lives in California and she asked if we have our emergency kit ready and we don't!! Last week, a big wind storm knocked out the power at night and we didn't have batteries for our flashlight....wherever it is. So I lit every Gold Canyon Candle I had and then had a huge headache from the great mixtures of scents. My sister in law is the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator in her ward....I will be calling her today!

Edna, you make me smile!
It seems we can never find our flashlights, either!

I have backpacks for all 6 of our 72 hour kits. Unfortuntately there's nothing in them! I totally hear you with the preparedness thing. We've got to do better! Oh, and you forgot to mention that one of the quakes was a 5.4! Cool, but unsettling at the same time.
