My California Quake

So... this will probably not make the news or anything... but Santa Barbara just had a little earthquake all to itself!! As you can see... the center of the earthquake was right out my back door! That line is only about 2 miles as the bird flies!

I was actually awake working when it hit... and wasn't quite sure what it was. I actually got up from my desk and went outside to see if anything was swaying or if animals were making any noises... but there was nothing. I then proceeded to my favorite USGS site to check out how much California is shakin'... and again found nothing.

So off to sleep I went... to catch myself a little three hour nap before a conference call I had this morning... not really thinking too much about it. When I woke up... there was an email from DJ asking me how much I had swayed around. A return trip to the USGS site revealed this:

So I hadn't been crazy... there actually was a little earthquake... and it was right out my back door!

You never responded to my text. I'll let it slide since you were apparently affected by this "quake". Just remember California will be in the ocean one day and I (my descendants rather) will then have beachfront property. Call me!!
