Glad to hear you were in a safer zone .. something I've never had to 
weather so far in my life, and would rather keep it that way ;(

One comment that one guy at work had about this was along the lines of 
aftershocks, where there is a ripple effect that radiates out from a big 
one affecting seemingly unrelated areas ... not sure how much I subscribe 
to that theory, as one would think that the 'aftershocks' would be less 
intense then the original, and, so far, 8.3/8.8 sounds *alot* higher then 
anything I've heard of recently ...

My thoughts and prays go out to you and your family ...
