Default Earthquake in SoCal

Well, that shook things up pretty good. A quake is always an interesting ride from a high-rise office building.

I'd be curious to hear how bad it was for people on the ground. All day long, I'm going to be wondering about my house.

Magnitude 5.8 - GREATER LOS ANGELES AREA, CALIFORNIA

5.8 is considerable. I hope everything's ok out there...

Everyone around me felt it down here in SD, but my boss and I felt nothing in my office. Now everyone is coming to my office if the big one hits.

Yeah that is probably about 15 miles from here at my office in Santa Fe Springs. We are ground level and shook real good, but nothing was damaged, just a couple things fell off shelves and that was about it. It hit pretty strong though.

Good to know, thanks. My house is much further away, but that doesn't keep me from thinking the worst. You know...walls cracked, glasses shattered, kegerator taps open and spewing ESB onto the floor, etc.

Noooooo! Anything but the ESB!

You should be fine. You can't even tell we had an earthquake now.

Not much to report from HB.

Let's hope it's not a precursor to something larger.

does an earthquake help aerate your wort before pitching?

yeah that was fairly large, but it didn't last more than...what...a minute or so. I'm guessing there's more on the way, maybe not bigger, but there will probably be some aftershocks.

I'm here at work on the fourth floor of this newly constructed building that was made with earthquake rollers. Anyone ever been in an earthquake in one of these before? It's pretty interesting, the whole building just swayed back and fourth well after the quake had subsided.

Hey, a minute seems like a century when the ground is moving under your feet!

I'm in the same situation, nearly new high-rise on the 4th floor. There was LOTS of motion going on, but it wasn't as violent as a quake on the ground...just swaying and rocking, almost like a small ship at sea.

My girl just called from her office downtown...on the 49th floor! Apparently it was a pretty wild ride up there, lots of people sick to their stomach from all the swaying.
