RE: Re: CA horses etc.

We just LAUGH at 4.4 on the Richter if we even feel it!
Yep, we never get too bored with nature in California.
At least we dont' have tornadoes and hurricanes too often.

 Kim thanks for reminding me! Oh man Lisa, I forgot to mention they had a 4.4  on the Richter scale earthquake over in Truckee just a couple of days ago, but don't think many people felt it, they'd all left town due to the huge "Gap" wild fire which caused the closure of  I 80. Now that woulda sped up the Tevis times, having a fire right behind you, eh Kim?  Thank God that didn't occur during ride day!!!  Ah California, what a place to live.   Beth
