There be Earthquakes!

Yes, I felt that earthquake late last night, and then today, I was out and about waiting for the bus to head up to do some shopping up on Foothill Blvd. and what do you know, there was an aftershock or something else.

For more info on any more earthquakes, the USGS has a great site showing everything from the last hour, to the last day, to the last week, and more (as if there were time). Below are some charts, etc. from there:

Actually, I grew up in the SF Bay Area and I always really enjoyed the earthquakes we had while growing up. It’s nature’s rollercoaster!

As I sat at the bus stop today and the earth jiggled and jolted, I got talking to someone there and they said that they always freak out a little since they are a California transplant from the east coast. Ze shared hir fear of the earth swallowing people up as happened in Bible stories, and of cities being swallowed up by an earthquake down into the sea. I told her that everything is the wellest here in Pomona. They may be shaking in dreadful fear elsewhere, the earth may swallow up whole cities into ocean, yes indeed, but here in Pomona it is a most wonderful paradise.
