We had a tiny shaker in L.A. If you want to know what it felt like, here's the exchange I had in the front yard with friend Tamsin:
ME: Wow, that big truck is shaking the ground.
TAMSIN: I don't think that's the truck.
We walked inside.
It wasn't until 30 minutes later, when I tried calling Boy on his cell, that we had this exchange:
ME: I've tried calling him twice and it says, "all circuits are busy."
TAMSIN: Both times?
ME: Y'know, I bet we were on the edge of a bigger one...
Sure enough, Chino Hills, where we were at a demolition derby two weeks ago. Of course local news and CNN are sensationalizing everything. It just makes me realize we should probably strap down the 70 gallon fishtank in the dining room...
