Rec this diary to appease the Shakey Earthquakey Gawd and prevent any aftershocks!
Just felt it here in Apple Valley, CA.
House is still shaking...
Thankfully nothings BREAKING, so I didn't title this as a BREAKING diary... ;)
Now I get to wait for the ever so pleasant aftershocks!
Anyone else here in Southern California feel it?
You know what would be really great right now?
If diary police come here and start asking me to delete because I lack the capacity to look into the future to find out and post the details of something that just occurred and have nothing more to report yet.
Remember the "Mukasey just collapsed" diary a couple of weeks ago where certain Kossacks went onto that diary and started demanding it's deletion because * gasp * it really was a "BREAKING" story and nothing had been reported yet? I hope we've learned from that.
Wait... just in case...
Update 1: Dog barking.
(There. That should calm the DP down for now.)
Update 2 (per Hardhat Democrat in comments):
A 5.5 from 10 minutes ago, according to USGS.
Centered 16 miles from the closest town (Ludlow, CA), and 116 miles east of LA.
Update 3: WOW! REC LIST! Thanks everyone!!! (not)
Update 4: I'm about to start making stuff up about how disastrous this quake was in order to get more recs...
Update 5: DIRT DISPLACED NOWHERE!!! Oh the humanity!!!
Update 6: I now see the err of my ways. I am supposed to "step away from my computer" so that I can be "surprised to find my diary on the rec list!" when I come back. Ok then... * walking away non-assumingly * ...
Update 7: * have NOT come back to my computer to check if my diary is on Rec list yet *
