Earthquake!

5.8 at 11:42 AM.

I was in the middle of a matinee of "Wizard of Oz" when the whole building shook, and it almost bounced me off the bench I was sitting on. Everything rattled like going up the first hill on a roller-coaster.

First one I've actually felt since I moved here! I feel like a real Californian.

EDIT: USGS downgraded it to 5.4, and it was centered in Chino Hills. I'm fine, it was really just a little rattling. Pyrate Queen was downtown/Long-Beach-ish, and actually lost cell service for a bit!
