BREAKING NEWS: 5.8 Quake Hits SoCal

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A magnitude-5.8 earthquake has struck just east of Los Angeles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake's epicenter was about 2 miles southwest of Chino Hills and about 5 miles southeast of Diamond Bar, the USGS said. Chino Hills is about 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. link.

Didja feel it? Didja? Huh? Didja?

NBFD, really. I live just north of the Mexico border and work in downtown San Diego (considerably south of L.A.) in a 4-story building that was built in 1898. We felt it. Actually, I heard it first - metal supply cabinet was kinda squeaking then I felt the floor rolling. Short and sweet. Just long enough to ask my office mate if she could feel it. The 100+ year old building we work in held up quite nicely.

Ok, back to work and/or blogging.

I'm working on a rant about the Gallup poll geek that was on MSNBC this morning, but so far haven't found any video of this clown outright lying....
