This morning, Long Beach was hit with a 3.7 earthquake. Apparently, a lot of my neighbors either didn't feel it or weren't fazed by it at all.
Of course, I was just getting out of the shower (and yes, I felt it). Thank Jebus it wasn't strong enough to freak me out and cause me to run into the street naked... talk about aftershock!
Honestly, as a Southern California native, I've been through so many quakes that it would really take a BIG ONE to turn me on freak me out. The last worrisome quake I went through got me thinking that I had better prep my house for if/when a big quake hits. I currently have zero emergency supplies/water/food. Also, there a lot of breakable things that are sitting on top of my fridge, dresser tops, and shelves.
I need to make a trip to my local homo depot and look into buying fasteners (Velcro?) to hold all that shitt in place, and then a trip to the market ( I just discovered I'm out of vodka)!
