    That doesn't sound exciting. But then I live in an area with floods, hurricanes and tornadoes.

    So last night a 5.1 earthquake hit LA.

    4.4-magnitude earthquake hits Los Angeles area - CNN.com

    Last week a 4.4 earthquake hit LA.



    Granted, I am not a seismologist. But I've heard that smaller quakes lead up to a really big one. Thankfully, it's been years and years since we've had a really big West coast quake.

    Are we in for another one? Anyone specialize in this?
    It's funny -- I was woken up by the 4.4 but never even knew until someone told me that a 5.1 hit.

    They're actually quite rare these days. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of earthquakes I've experienced since moving here.

    Was the epicenter in different locations?

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Thanks.

    There are actually quite a few above 3.0 in the last couple of days. Y'all are saying that's normal? Are aftershocks that big? (sorry for the stupid questions - don't know about this stuff)

    They were, but the 5.1 was only marginally further from me than the 4.4. I should have felt it.

    I also grew up there. After I left people would walk into my house and ask why I had nothing on the walls.

    It really had never occured to me to put anything onthe walls. Things on walls fall off in earth quakes. I still don't have anything on my walls and I live in a different country.

    I had a very small female friend back inthe 80s. She said she was deathly afraid of earth quakes. I couldn't understand that as they are no big deal.

    When I saw her bedroom for the first time I finally understood.

    She had a huge bookcase as the head of her bed and it was not attatched to the Wall in any way.

    If a big one had hit, whe would have been crushed. I laughed at her a Little.

    Oh, you know what? I was drinking. I was at a function last night and they were serving 16% alcohol wine. I didn't drink all week so my tolerance was at rock bottom, and the two glasses I had hit me like a truck. That probably explains it.
