What were you doing at 2:17am this morning?

What were you doing at 2:17am this morning? I had a tremendous head ache after the Lakers-Celtics game and I was lying in bed awake. I am one of those armchair coaches who amerces himself totally into the game, and boy this was a stressful game.

Next thing I know is, the bad shaking, it was a small earthquake. According to the US Geological Survey this was a 3.6 magnitude temblor and was centered about four miles west of Redondo Beach at a depth of 8 miles.

Thankfully this was minor and did not even make it into the major news. Since I live in Marina Del Rey, I felt this brief and mild jolt which lasted about a second or two.

This is a small price to pay for living in such a great area. Times like this I reaffirm that I have to take the Earthquake preparedness more seriously.

If you are a consumer  who is considering buying  or selling  a home, investment real estate, vacation homes, or beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Culver City, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu. Feel Free to give me a call at 310.486.1002 (USA) or email me at homes@endrebarath.com  or visit one of my websites at http://www.endrebarath.com  Your Pet Friendly Realtor.

Ralph, I can't believe that it's that earthshaking that the Lakers lost.  I'm a disgruntled Suns fan.

Endre - I am thankful that I haven't ever had to experience an earthquake.  I have enough trouble on solid ground that isn't moving.  :)

Endre,  Glad you're okay and it was not a big one!  I lived in Van Nuys for four years back in the early 80s and never felt one.  Like you though, I have to get my hurricane preparedness kit ready...
