OT-Earthquake in Costa Rica

First of all, we are OK--we are in the southern part of the country and the earthquake that hit San Jose (actually the outlying area near Poas Volcano) wasn't even felt here. I hope crtreedude is OK up North.

I will be down here for the next 2 1/2 weeks helping my wife with our ecolodge. details can be seen at www.marYselva.com

The weather here was really good today--high around 80--sunny, a few clouds, stunning views of the jungle and the ocean-- the pool temperature was around 82, so it felt warm...there were howler monkeys out, the toucans, all sorts of birds--

I have bikes down here so I will be riding, hopefully starting tomorrow, but if not, it will be the next day

train safe--

Speaking of which, we just had one about 20 minutes ago! I was one the phone with my mom when I felt the sudden jolt and told her we're having an earthquake. She didn't feel anything, then about 5 seconds later said she felt it. USGS currently puts it at a magnitude 5.0 centered around San Bernardino.
