We just received a little shake as we were getting ready to think about loading the car for the trip to the airport. Here’s the USGS site that describes what we just experienced: http://pasadena.wr.usgs.gov/recenteqs/Maps/118-34.htm (this link is now outdated – but still interesting, however the earthquake was determined to be a 5.4 – not big by California standards).
It shook a few things off of the shelves and we are now wondering if this is a precursor to the BIG ONE. If so, we might come home to rubble (but not Barney, Betty, or Bam Bam). (It’s now a week later, so obviously not the BIG ONE).
