Did that earthquake in SoCal disturb anyone's Easter meal?

Wouldn't an small-medium earthquake aid digestion?

Looks to be OK so far. Maybe Koko had a cake fall if it was in the oven :-)

It was in Baja, but they felt it at my mom's (she lives in far-southern
San Diego county, almost to the Mexican border). The cats were very
scared; my foster sister less so, but a bit. My mom was in a moving car,
so she didn't feel it.

A co-worker's dad lives in Baja, and some of his windows cracked, but
he's otherwise okay.

We had dinner a while after the shaker, but it was the strongest one
I've experienced since moving to SoCal in 2001. I was in my home
office and the 7' bookcases moved enough that I was afraid they were
going to fall over. Coincidentally, since we moved into the new house
3 weeks ago, I have been systematically putting earthquake putty on
and under some of my more tippy and vulnerable pieces. We didn't get
enough of a shake to put it to the test, but I was glad I'd done it.

This one was quite a roller, Instead of the quick shake we get from
time to time, this one went on for a good minute or so, which doesn't
sound long unless you're living through it. It was also a lot
stronger. The hanging lamps were swaying hard, floor lamps wobbling
and it is a really weird feeling, almost as if you're on a boat in a
mild chop.

Really? The CO mts. are forecast to receive
12-18 inches of snow between tonight and Wednesday morning.
The foothills will get 6-12 inches.

I'd have the bookcases screwed to the walls if I were you.

Why? When I was there in 1967 there was an earthquake. I do not know
exactly where the epicenter was but in a second floor apartment in
Aurora, I felt the tremor.

That's right, rub it in. I ski and the skiing they have out here in
SoCal is lame.

I'd have the bookcases screwed to the walls if I were you.


A good shaker would laugh at screws in the walls :-)

We are fine, thank you for asking.
A little unnerved with all the aftershocks but are faring much better
than those in Calexico, Ca and Mexicali, Mexico, about 60 miles east
of us. It's a miracle that no more than two lives were lost. I feel
for their families.
From what I've heard most of the damage on the U.S. side was to the
older 1930's and 50's buildings.
At last report I heard there were 25,000 homeless in Mexicali, Mexico.
Mexicali has a population of about 2 million.

This shows the awesome power of the quake. It was twice as strong as
the one that hit Haiti.

And at 7.2, a tad stronger than the 6.7 Northridge quake..... which I
thought was bad enough.
