So, I’m sure everyone knows by now, we had a pretty big jolt today… A nice 5.4 earthquake. I was at work, and I thought a semi truck slammed into the office. Most of the office pretty much hauled ass to get out of the building while it was rolling… I have been thru the Northridge quake, and the whittier narrows quake in 87, and multiple more smaller quakes, all of my life. I can honestly say, they really don’t bother me much. My chair at my desk started rolling around, and my monitor fell over as well. I just kinda sat there and held on to the desk just waiting it out.
I did get up just before it was over to talk to another worker in the office (she and I were the only ones who didn’t “run” out). Then, evacuated the building to make sure everything was safe to come in. Kinda messy. Ceiling tiles fell, many monitors fell too. I think some things in the plant weren’t right because most of the plant workers left for the day shortly after. The phone lines in the building were down for a bit, and EVERYONES cell phones wouldn’t work. I know most was due to literally millions of people trying to call each other, but also, AT&T/Cingular did have issues due to the quake. That made it really difficult for me, as I couldn’t get a hold of the kid. I was more stressed about talking to her than of the quake itself!
Alas, I did find out she was ok and actually helped out at daycare with the younger kids to keep them calm.. She is such a cool kid. Love Her!
Oh, and I heard that a friend of mine was giving birth right about the same time. Can you imagine?!?!
Anyway, so that’s about it for the earthquake. I am actually in the epicenter of it. Literally. So it really was kinda cool. 🙂 And, besides that event, nothing much happening lately.. Just enjoying the kid and chillin’.
