We had a lot of broken glass and pictures that fell off the wall.

We ended up with about $1000 worth of cosmetic damage to sheetrock and corner beadings. The good thing that came out of this is when Im showing houses in the Somersett area you can see that these homes have been through some serious seismic activity and the majority of the homes have faired very well. Check out the links below for more information on the quakes.

 Let's hope the weather cooperates for us to enjoy a day by the   pool. One of the central draws of Somersett and the world class amenities is the pool complex. I don't know of a better facility for the kids or adults.

The kids have a mini water park adults can enjoy a quiet swim in the lap pool. There is also a snack bar poolside.

Here are just a few of the happenings this year at the pool.
