Happy July 4, USA! #amwriting #campnanowrimo

A very happy Independence Day to my fellow United States residents and happy Camp NaNoWriMo to all!

The Ridgecrest quake woke us up today!

Here in South California the Fourth started with a bang. A 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit about 10:30am. Its epicentre was near Ridgecrest, California, a community in the desert between the Sequoia National Monument and Death Valley. We felt the shaking here in Los Angeles for nearly a minute, though the quake was more than 140 miles away. Luckily it did no more than shake my computer monitor, but it sure woke our household up!
