On Top of the Fire Scare Today...

... we JUST had a small earthquake nearby. The boys were getting into bed, and E, Dash, and I were settling down to watch the Survivor premiere when the house shook, once gently and slowly and then again, more strongly and jerkingly. The windows rattled and the hanging light over the school table swayed slightly.

The boys came flying out of their room -- "Did you feel THAT, Mom?" Yep, we all did.

I just checked the USGS site and it was a minor quake of 3.3 on the Richter scale, centered less than 30 miles from our town, out in the desert. No damage anywhere.

A fire in the morning, and an earthquake in the evening. Living in Southern California is nevah, nevah dull.
