Earthquake, May 17, 839pm: 5.0 (10-15 second shaker)

quake_5Please tell me you felt that one. Lucky me! It struck just as I was perched atop a rolling chair, tearing down blue painting tape from the ceiling trim in the Sandalwood conference room, juggling pilsner all the while. Fun times in the Marina del Rey Courtyard Marriott. Apparently the epicenter was in Lenawthorgundowood. Still waiting for the breakdown from Kate Hutton; meantime, how’d that one treat you? Aftershock reached 3.1.

UPDATE: Magnitude downgraded to 4.7.
