Earthquake!

Our corporate guests from Singapore, Amsterdam, Spain, and India were able to experience a bit of excitement this evening - California Style.

We hope everyone is okay.

This one started with some potential, but faded out. Nothing like '89.

5.6 vs 7.1 (a vast difference!) Remember, it is a logarithmic scale.

The strongest I've felt since the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. I would not want to have a repeat of that one....
