I was sitting on the floor of my apartment (Because I don't really have seating besides my bed) when it hit. A SoCal native, I was like 'Oh, I should go hide under something' and then realized I've no furniture to hide under...and realized that when the BIG ONE finally hits, I'm royally fucked.
You always have that second thought - 'Is this it? Is this the BIG ONE?'
That was a small one...you must have all forgotten about the Northridge earthquake...my tv almost killed me in THAT one...lol. I was sitting here reading. When I realized what was happening I was like, "Aw shit." (verbatim...lol)
except for the LA native part...ditto exactly. I'm downtown shit was all creakin and crackin. and i stood up and kinda walked around in a circle looking for somewhere to go. I even created a plan for myself after the one a couple of months ago...the only doorway leads to the bathtoom...
im spray going to spray paint a PANIC lane on my floor. hahh
USGS.gov always has automatic updates within 90 seconds of the event
and you can listen to HAM operators talk about it all day if you have a scanner.
Holy shit the post I'm replying to is above this box for my reference how nice.
I guess I'll throw a snowcone at beer.
