Thanks Bob-- that was interesting. During the Lomp Prieta earthquake my grandfather clock was bolted to the wall and it stopped.

In the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, my pendulum clock fell over on its
face and the weights went the glass, so I guess you could say the
earthquake stopped it. It's now screwed to the wall, but the mechanism
is still flakey.
