I love a good earthquake where no one gets hurt! Last night in the midst of chinese food and catching up on Saturday Night Live, the living room started rattling. Turned out to be a 4.7 centered in Hawthorne, CA, which is about 45 minutes away from where we live. Luckily, nothing broke (at least I don't think anything did...haven't checked the china in the boxes) and we didn't experience any aftershocks. Yes, I know it's a touch odd, but as long as nothing bad happens as a result, I think the shakin's kinda fun!
Did you notice I've qualified my liking for earthquakes several times in the above paragraph? I may be a lady of science, but I'm still superstitious enought not to want to tempt the earthquake gods to throw larger, more dangerous rumblings our way.
Here's the shakemap from the U.S. Geological Survey's site. For more info, click here.
