I just experienced my first California earthquake. Scared the living shit outta me. It sounded like a big explosion from the back of the house, I didn’t know what the fuck was goin’ on! I thought the water heater had exploded, or, like, a giant meteor had smashed down in the backyard. But it was none of those things, just a little quake and everything seems to be okay.
A few years ago I blogged about an earthquake I felt in Chicago. The one tonight one was scarier though. It was just a jolt, but a pretty strong jolt compared to the Chicago one, which I only noticed because the floor-lamp was trembling.
