Crazy stuff.  I was on the way out to the lake on Saturday and talked to one of my little brothers.  He said he was headed for Palm Springs that afternoon.

Yesterday when we finished tubing, he left me an IM on my phone telling me he "was in an earthquake, and it was awesome."  Of course, being from Texas, I guess anything other than a tornado is cool.

He was out later that afternoon playing golf.

Glad though this one was not terribly damaging and I hope it's not the precursor to a terrible one.

We didn't feel it at all here. In fact, the only evidence that there was a quake of any substinance was the fallen figures from my display. :P

I think most of the JD members from Califorina didn't feel the 6.6 since it was up North in Eurkea close by to the 7.0 a few nights ago. 

A reporter for a local station was talking about how some USGS people were saying that the 4.9 yesterday could mean the San ANdreas will go soon (within a few days).  THe chances through get smaller with time.

I heard there was a tsunami warning from California to British Columbia.

I think that was for the 7.0 on tuesday (I think) didn't hear of one being issue for the 6.6 yesterday.  In a way I wish there would of been a tsunami so that the stuipid idoits who went to the coast to see the ocean being suck out to sea would of gotten to see it.   ::) 
You would think that with the 2004 tsunami people would know what not to do.

We had another small tembler yesterday morning, a 4.9 if I remember right, about 80 miles inland from LA.

Again, I didn't feel it, but it did manage to rupture the main gas line in my apartment building. Since yesterday, we've been without gas (and hence hot water) and apparently the Gas Co is in no hurry to fix the situation. They're heading out here on Saturday "sometime before 6pm" to look into the problem.

I might be able to have a hot shower sometime by week's end.  ::)

3.8 here last night. I know several people who felt it, and I heard it. Pretty neat.

Nahh.... Been through 2 worse ones than that where alotta folks died. Hell in one of them if they hadn't let us off early that day at the wherehouse someone at my work could have perished....just minutes after everyone left one of our 4 story racking fell -it had tons (literally) of starters and alternators on the racks that were everywhere on the floor when we came to work the next day- when I got home that day my Pool was like a 4 foot tidal wave pouring all the water out- my backyard was soaked. And the same quake they had to resume all the world series games in Oakland!

a 6 point whateverer...sigh, experienced worse. Oh, and Cally will 'fall off' into the ocean long after my kids and I are dead. My plastic star wars figs will last till then
