During the recent earthquake here in Los Angeles, I found myself mildly spooked. Not because of the quake itself, nono – after all, I had, since I moved to LA, wished for exactly this kind of quake. “I want a quake,” I told friends, “just strong enough for me to experience one [I’d never felt one before], but mild enough so no one gets hurt.” The quake of a couple of weeks ago was exactly what I’d ordered.
I felt my first quake today – about five minutes ago – and think I just felt something again. More like rolling waves than the “jolt” just described on MSNBC. Everything looks OK here in Venice. On-the-fly updates here.
