We just experienced an earthquake here in Los Angeles. It was 5.8. I'm on the 20th floor of a tall skyscraper, so that was interesting, feeling the desk move. Fortunately, there doesn't seem to be any major damage or injuries here in LA. I was in the elevator about 5 minutes before it hit.
For me, this was a great example of how news travels fast. It happened at 11:42. My Dad, who is in Detroit, called at 11:47 to make sure I was OK. Thanks Dad!
It's odd to be in an earthquake, because you have no notice, unlike hurricanes or wildfires. But it's also over very fast.
That's life today at Talented Earthquake Productions. This was not, fortunately, a talented earthquake.
Update: Looks like I picked the wrong day to stop drinking coffee.
