I don't like earthquakes and we just had one. Okay, it wasn't the big one. It was 5.0 magnitude. But that's enough for me. The house shook. Things rattled. The news is saying it might have been a prelude to the BIG ONE which, of course, we here in California always expect.
While things were still shaking, I put my cell phone and my wallet in my pocket and headed for the bathroom. I figure what with the plumbing and all, that might be the safest room in the house.
And now we wait for an aftershock or several. That's one thing about earthquakes. We don't know what's going on.
Of course, Dr. Kate Hutton of Cal Tech is probably having the time of her life right now.
Different strokes and all that.
The family cats slept through the whole thing. Either that or they chose to ignore it. Cats are like that.
