It’s a big one, and very shallow.

Working its way up to you babe.
You are truly a gentleman and a Christian.

I hope so too, but have a bad feeling about it. Probably because it is such a shallow one.
I assume we are on tsunami watch - anyone know how long before the coastal areas will be out of danger?
Must be earthquake season - LA, Yellowstone, and now this.
Its been one of those crazy quake weeks..LA has been pretty busy with quakes, but NOTHING of this magnitude..prayers for Chile and all the surrounding areas

Bad night, or always this evil??
How very kind of you.
Thanks. Southern California FReepers and our families appreciate your kind sentiments.
It’s all that off shore fracking they’re doing off the coast of Chile.
on buoy off shore of chile just recorded a one meter tide change which isn’t good since the buoy is in in deep water
You do understand that should that happen,people of all ages from babies on up-would die horrible deaths?
I just read on Drudge that the buffalo (bison for the Yankees) are leaving Yellowstone following recent earthquakes there.
Sumpin’s coming down.
That’s just mean. I hope Flesh Gordon’s Sex Ray hits you.
What a dark hearted thing to say. Repent!
