A few weeks ago we had an earthquake in Napa Ca, shaking us all the way to the coast. In a conversation with a resident from Napa, she said the damages are well in the millions, $300,000 million dollars she said.
Reading the news papers there was a lot of damage to historic buildings, wineries suffered the most. Here is a photograph of one wine cellar that took a devastating loss.
NAPA QUAKE !
As we were awakened by a familiar rumble in our beds, we laid there, waiting, wondering if we were going to be hit again. We checked for any damage to the house and found none.
It has been at least twenty-five years since the last shake.
We’re about 30 minutes from American Canyon, yet we were not hit as bad. There was no damage for us.
The image above as you see is a horrific image of devastation from that morning’s 6.0 trembler in American Canyon; many customers certainly are wondering how to react. Until more information comes in, we should presume that all warehoused wine in California has been totally destroyed and that this year’s harvest will be canceled.
As such, it is the store’s advice, and possibly the advice of the USGS, that you get in today to buy as much wine as you can.
Also, cancel any wine club memberships and sign up for ‘Cab & Slab’.
