We just had a fast earthquake. My server rack swayed and of course the floor moved but otherwise it was less than ten seconds. It was a magnitude 3.5 according to the all-news station.

The epicenter is about three miles away: Santa Monica & Burton Way. This isn't far from Monday's 3.2, which was a block and a half from Wilshire & Doheny. Since it's that low a number but I had clear evidence of it.

It's true, though: the cats do go nuts leading up to it. I want to know what they know.

Okay, time for bed.

Glad to hear you're doing fine! The bit about cats reminds me that I'm sorry I wasn't at home to watch Jezebel before we had that earthquake here a year or so back, although watching people pop out of their offices like gophers out of holes was kind of amusing. (Not to mention the partner whose aquarium came perilously close to sloshing over onto his carpet...)

We found that the two Beverly Hills earthquakes gave our apartment a pleasant rocking motion, like being on a boat.

Time to attach the rack to the wall. Having it fall over in a bigger quake would bite.

I just imagined something for the first time, what if a surgeon is starting surgery and an earthquake hits as they're making the first cut?
