Earthquakes and Turkey

We were on our way to the the beach this morning when we got a call from Jon's brother who is visiting us in Hawaii asking us if we just felt the earthquake. What earthquake we said? While we were in the car there was an earthquake here in Kona, Hawaii. It was a 5.0 on the Richter scale, which is a decent size. It was Jon and his families first quake. Jon was bummed that we were in the car and didn't feel it. I guess there were pictures that fell off the wall and other chaos going on.

After the earthquake the power went off which caused my stepmom to begin to worry because she had Thanksgiving dinner to try and cook. After a few hours the power came back on but we were pretty close to not having a turkey dinner.

Right after the quake we went the beach not knowing there was a tsunami warning. We thought about it but figured if the ocean began to pull back we would just run for high ground. It was fun and the waves were good. All in all it was an exciting Thanksgiving.
