Holy sheep, that was big. O_O Unless the epicenter was in our basement, that was definitely a doozy. All the other Southern California people okay?

I was downstairs napping on the couch when suddenly everything was moving and rattling. It went on for probably around 20-30 seconds, although it’s hard to tell looking back to huddling in a doorway with my husband; once your heartrate goes up, time estimates tend to go kind of off-kilter. [wry smile]

EDIT: The USGS entry just came up — it was a 5.0 right in LA. It felt stronger, but probably because it pretty much was in our basement. [laugh/flail] I hope everyone else is okay.
