St. Paddy’s Day LA Earthquake… Still not sure I’m ready!


It’s all over my Facebook timeline.  My friends are talking about the earthquake this morning.  I was awake, laying in my bed, waiting for my son to get ready, and I didn’t feel a thing!

Last week, I said the same thing, but that earthquake was in NORTHERN California.  This one was in SOUTHERN California, centered in Westwood.  I should have felt it, huh?  That’s the second earthquake in less than a week in SoCal.  Today, I’m taking time to make sure I have a full tank of gas, because I let mine fall below a quarter tank.


To all my LA area friends, and to anyone who lives in an earthquake prone area, please take a moment to check out my two posts about prepping for an earthquake found here and hereMake sure you have some water, food, and fuel!  Sometimes these littler quakes are precursors for a big quake.  The west coast of the Americas have been rattling away over the past week or so.


Are you ready if this was a precursor to the BIG ONE?
