YAWN. I've been living in SoCal since 1999 and I think I've only actually felt an earthquake like 5 times. Today was one of those things where for 15 seconds you're like "Uhhh..." and then afterwards it's "hey, that was kind of fun!" Obviously it was a little scarier for people living south of Los Angeles, but if this occasional thing is the price of having the best weather in the country, I will gladly continue to pay it.

I'm so close to you and we totally felt it. Maybe your house is built stronger than our building.

Earthquakes are not funny in general, but I'm pretty sure Char said that the lamp hanging upside down was funny.

scared the crap out of me and they usually don't. I was on the 7th floor and we rolled for quite a while. Just got home and things are out of cupboards and my unstable piles o crap in the garage have fallen but nothing worse than that.

Wow, BAWs, you guys got hit hard. I didn't expect to see that. Watching the news from out here I forget how scary those things used to be. I can't say I miss them at all. We didn't feel anything out here, it was centered too far west.

I'm really glad you guys are ok.

Were there any broken wine glasses?

The building where I work is mostly all windows
