Of course I did, sitting here at my desk in Chino Hills, CA, the epicenter of California's latest 5.8 shaker.
I think every Californian does that, now, wait a sec, where is this going thought and it got to the point where I said to myself, okay, time to head under the desk. And that's what I did, and waited it out, yelling to the staff to get under theirs and stay there until the shaking stopped. We all agreed it was "in the 5's" and started punching up KNX-1070 on our desktops to find out more.
Some of the gals were a little scared, but for the most part, Californians tend to treat earthquakes like this (a few pictures were knocked askew on our walls) with a sense of humor. Of course, we are situated in a one-story building - if you really want an experience, be towards the top of a high-rise, such as in downtown LA, where the buildings are designed to sway during an earthquake. And I am willing to bet there are more than a few scared tourists at our local theme parks, coming as they might from places where this sort of thing just doesn't happen!
Got through to home - DigiSpouse says all is well. Got through to DigiBrother, to make sure he tells DigiMother all is well - his colleagues at the Port Authority thought it was pretty cool he was getting the news firsthand, especially when an aftershock hit while I was on the phone.
Hey, Californians - how are things by you? Anyone have a Kent Shocknek moment?
Update: Whine, whine, whine - Gem of the Ocean did not feel it in Old Town San Diego and is complaining about it! Karen, pity Fr. Sean wasn't visiting this week - I always love watching tourists - especially Brits - get excited about "surviving" a California earthquake! :-D
