I have lived in Southern California for a total of 9 years and have felt plenty of slight tremors, but late this morning we had a 5.8 earthquake. This was not a horrible earthquake, but strong enough. We are all okay, just scared half to death. It knocked things off shelves, but only a few items were broken. Caleb said, "Mama, I don't ever want to feel an earthquake again"! I guess I should consider myself lucky that it has taken this long before we've had a real earthquake. And to think people here are terrified of tornadoes-at least you know they're coming!
