Yes, you heard correctly. There was an earthquake in LA; Chino Hills to be exact. 5.8 in magnitude and I'm ok. I haven't been in an earthquake since I was a kid and I definitely wasn't sitting in an office building when I felt the last one. But, uhh... yeah, spur of the moment post since I've gotten texts, phone calls, and messages from various people.

Here in Chino Hills the carnage was about nil (I'm about two miles from the epicenter). My phone was going off for about an hour straight.

I'm glad you're okay :)

Who else would laugh at my dumb stories about accidentally sending text messages to the wrong people?

Brad - I'm glad you're ok! I think the ground moving was scarier than the walls.

Elise - Thank you for calling! =) That wasn't a dumb story; it was fantastic! That could ONLY ever happen by accident.

Earthquakes scare me half to death. I'm glad you're ok!

Just out of curiosity, were any of the people who called out of concern native Southern Californians?

Earthquakes are such an anomaly almost everywhere else, people from outside of this area usually react A LOT more than we do.

Not being critical of's just interesting.

Kirsten - Ha, I haven't felt one like that since I was a kid!

Gann - No, you're right. I was immediately contacted by people outside of California. But if there was a huge tornado warning in the midwest, I'd be making some calls!

I guess if I knew anyone currently living in the midwest, I would too...
