Just felt an earthquake, checked the USGS website and it looks like it was around 5, and inland from here... everyone ok? Everyone's mugs ok?

Looks like it was around 5.6, and south of here, southwest of Palm Springs:

Scared the hell out of me. I was watching Hawaiian Eye on TV Land when the house started shaking. No broken mugs, but I'll be buying more earthquake hold today.

I didn't feel it, but Krustiki did. He thought I was shaking his chair. All of our hanging lamps were swaying, especially the puffer fish lamp. Fortunately nothing fell off the shelves.

I was driving. Felt nothing. A lot of people at the church (Hollywood) felt it.

The first thump felt like something fell in the house, so I went upstairs to see if anything did... that's when the roll started. It was a nice couple jolts, but (thankfully) nothing fell.

Not exactly... I went through regular earthquakes in Seattle, including a biggie a few years ago... I barely felt this one.

Certainly not I. My wife and I were knocking tectonics ourselves at the time. No stranger to the art of subduction, I had already set off a number of small tremors and foreshocks by focusing my energies on the epicenter of her ring of fire, when suddenly, my Blind Thrust Fault locked with her Benioff Zone, triggering a seismic moment that registered completely off the Richter Scale, resulting in the liquification of her molten core and my own personal tsunami. I don't mean to brag, but there were several moderate aftershocks of magnitude 5.0 or greater. If I had known about the earthquake, I would have asked her if I had made the Earth move for her, but unfortunately, neither one of us noticed it.

Hmmm... I wonder what Lucy Jones would have to say about that!



(FYI - Dr. Lucy Jones of USGS is So. Cals. 'go to gal' for instant earthquake info. She's all smart like that.)

first earthquakes, then tsunami warnings, then rain and snow in June, and my mother and I had flat tires on the same morning (two separate counties); and when I went to get my tire fixed I heard the song "Its the End of the World as We Know It" by REM playing in the fix it shop.

I'm inclined to hope it's not true, but I have not been presented with facts and statistics establishing otherwise...
