Earthquake in Abruzzo


Thank you to everyone who sent messages wondering how we're doing here in Tuscany. We were fortunate not to have been located in the region of Abruzzo where the Earthquake occurred, and our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones due to this natural disaster.

Perhaps the greatest tragedy of all is that an alarm was raised regarding the possibility of a major earthquake occurring...and it was ignored.

We are about one hour and a half from Rome, where they are filming the Italian version of "Big Brother." This was the scene in "The House" at 3:32 am when the earthquake hit.

I'm glad you and your family are all ok. I've thought about you, my queen bitch. ;-)

Give our prayers to the people of Abruzzo.

Hug.

Jodi,
I knew you weren't in the same general area where the earthquake hit, but have been thinking about you and all of those in Italy today. I haven't heard what the richter measurement was, but was in a 6.8 a few years back. I know the fear. Did you feel any shaking at all?
