So I should mention that we did feel the earthquake here in San Francisco a few days ago. It was considerable enough to wake up my husband and I at 3:30am, although I feel like the earthquake I felt back in Virginia in 2011 was worse (maybe cause it was longer?). We had no damage to our home, our little monster slept through it, and my husband easily went back to sleep (I, however, had to go pee and any pregnant woman knows how that goes). Many of our friends here, including long time San Franciscans, said that it was a big earthquake.
The next morning had me thinking about the true safety of our home. We have our earthquake supplies to last us three days. But we don’t have any of our furniture tethered to the wall or anything. If this earthquake happened in the daytime and was just half a magnitude bigger, who knows what would have happened to my son with the furniture. I mean we have our normal baby proofing in place like plug covers and gates, and I did make sure that there’s nothing hanging over his bed. So I quickly went on Amazon and bought this, this, and this (because you can never have too many first aid kits). Hopefully we won’t have any more significant earthquakes any time soon, but if we do we’ll be more prepared.
