What’s more dangerous than three carpenters on the roof without harnesses? Three carpenters on the earth without harnesses during an earthquake.

Luckily, only half of this took place today.

When an earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter Scale struck just 90 miles away, Greff and Rick (the plumber/experienced backhoe driver) were moving earth – digging footings for the deck. Rick felt the vibrations – even stopping the backhoe thinking perhaps there was a problem with the engine. Greff, standing is the shaking ground, felt nothing. Go figure.
