  1. But did you feel it? Shook pretty good up here in Waimea.

    Damon – You know… I thought I felt something… but with the floors we have in our house… sometimes I think it’s just someone walking around. I also think that having a much older house that has gone through many earthquakes has loosened up the walls enough so that they give more when we do have them so I don’t really notice them that much.
