Earthquake Season Begins

We got a little shock this morning at 11:42 am. A 5.4-5.8 magnitude earthquake hit Chino Hills. This was the longest earthquake I have experienced. It is largest earthquake the Los Angeles area has experienced in 14 years. It gave Tatum and Davis a scare and it started a game of twenty questions with Tatum. She was convinced that an earthquake is a living thing and was worried if it was going to go to grandmas house next. I tried explaining the whole plate tectonics theory (which just leads to more questions). There doesn't seem to be much damage anywhere. I guess it is our practice drill... time to get our emergency preparedness back in order.
