Shake, Rattle and Roll!

The 5.4-magnitude quake — considered moderate — was felt from Los Angeles to San Diego, and as far east as Las Vegas, 230 miles away. Nearly 30 aftershocks quickly followed, the largest estimated at 3.8.
The quake was centered 29 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles near Chino Hills, a San Bernardino County city of 80,000 built mostly in the early 1990s with the latest in earthquake-resistant technology. By ROBERT JABLON
Whoowee scared the pooey out of me! Thought it was going to be a big one like the Northridge earthquake in 1994! I was giving myself a pedicure and talking on the phone to Ladybuglola...we both yelled the same thing when it hit! I was surprised we both felt it at the same time cuz she lives in Tehachapi which is an hour away from me! Freaky! My dad drove out to check on me because the phone lines were down. James was home from work sick, which is a double blessing because he works in downtown LA! A lady at his work said it felt like a roller coaster..yucky! I hate motion! Whether it be elevators, roller coasters...whatever ug!:)

I was at work on my computer with my dog underneath my feet as always. She lays under my desk. First thing I thought was Sandi be still. I looked down and she was still sleeping. LOL Then I realized yep Earthquake!!!!

My boss was walking around and didn't realize it until we said something. hehe

I feel sorry for the people in Chino Hills though. As bad as we felt it. I can only imagine how bad it was there.

By the way, how did the pedicure come out?

it wasn't that bad, but it is very interesting that LBLola would feel it at the same time.

i was thinking about a month ago that it had been a while since i felt one, and that we were due.
