Breaking Me In

Thursday, January 08, 2009

At 7:49 this evening I was rocking a more-agitated-than-usual baby to sleep when I felt a door slam. Then a loud thud and rumble like thunder.

Earthquake.

I looked out my window, and across the condo complex courtyard neighbors were doing the same. I checked my phone. A tweet reading "Earthquake!" had already been received. How long did that take? 30 seconds, tops.

Now, less than an hour later, the LA Times has the story:

"In communities around the epicenter, including as far away as Claremont, residents reported a sharp jolt."
