My First Earthquake

Ok, so... I'm still alive. Sorry I didn't say more about that: I'm well and much much better.

However now the earth itself is trying to kill me. Well.. ok, I exagerate, but to a non-native it was fun/impressive that 4.7 Earthquake hit a short distance north of me and we just felt it rock the floor like being in a car when the motor splutters and dies.

Pretty neat!

Meh. Wait 'til there's a 7.0 earthquake. Then you're in for some fun. ;)

I felt that one. I looked outside, saw that there were no trucks nearby and said, "Hey hon, we just had an earthquake." She hadn't noticed. ca_snowflake is bummed, because she always misses them.

You're mad! I find NOTHING cool about natural disasters. I don't miss earthquakes at all. They're one of my worst fears. Least it wasn't big.

hm, apparently there was an aftershock for that one.. 2.2 and another kilometer lower in the earth than the one you felt, as well as about an hour later. or is it preparing for a bigger one?

neat.

Well its the biggest one so far in CA. Looking at the shakemap there has been a bunch of smaller ones travelling north. Probably whatever needed to shift, shifted.

Probably.

I always sleep through earthquakes, one of my earliest memories is me waking up when i was like 4, seeing pictures shaking on the walls, and rolling over to go back to sleep

if things are'nt falling off shelves, there is no reason to get up

I think you just forgot.

I mentioned it when I first got it (while I was at 20six) and again when I hooked up iTunes to it, and again the other day when we were talking about Pandora with Marrissa!

Heh, more like I've not a lot to post about right now.

I've never been one for diary entries, especially when they are dull.
