Earthquake Redux

Yeah, that was just another earthquake. It was a 5.3 centered 71 miles east of the LA Civic Center. For me, this was the first time I’ve been in a tallish building during an earthquake, on the eighth floor.

Between this earthquake, the one on Sunday, and the tsunami warning Tuesday night, I get the feeling we are about to fall into the sea. Maybe we shouldn’t elect actors as governors anymore. I know the relationship between having an actor as the state’s chief executive and earthquake is tenuous, it seems good enough for me.

    I think they’re all just an excuse to get OC Metbloggers to post more entries.

    Shoot, if it works for that, send some seismic goodness up SF’s way.

    And the link to Arnold works for me. Damn the man! God doesn’t like it when you F with representative government, Mr. Governor!

    I happened to be on the 11th floor of the DLand Hotel. It shook way too much for a 4.9. They (The USGS) always revises the magnitude down about an hour after the quake. The seismic swarms after a relatively quiet period of seismic activity is interesting.

    The weird thing is that they were also reporting a 2.0 in West Costa Mesa a few minutes before that, which I thought I sort of felt maybe kinda, and then they removed that quake completely later on. Was there or wasn’t there a quake at Victoria & Pomona? Odd.
