I woke up this morning to see a Facebook post from a friend about an earthquake. I thought, “we had an earthquake?” So I googled, and sure enough there was a 4.4 earthquake last night at 11:30, centered in Yorba Linda which is about 20 miles north-ish of where I live. There were several small aftershocks afterward.
I slept through all of it. It’s not the first time I’ve slept through an earthquake. In a weird way I was sad. I know, I know, it’s crazy, but when earthquakes are small and not dangerous, I almost think they’re fun.
Go ahead and call me a weirdo. It’s ok. 🙂
I guess I got my wish though because about 20 minutes ago we had another one. This one was a 4.5, also centered in Yorba Linda. Then we got a teeny aftershock a couple minutes ago. For me, since I’m about 20 miles away, it doesn’t feel big. But a lot of family and friends are only 10ish miles from it so they’re feeling it worse.
My 5 mile run this morning was pretty good. I got up at 6 to beat the heat. It worked ok, I guess. I got through all my ab work and arm weights, showered, made the bed, etc etc.
The same as usual: cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, honey, granola, and strawberries. And ice coffee with milk and Hersheys.
Soon I’m off to the district office to get a new ID badge made. I also need to call our cable company at some point to try and negotiate a lower monthly price. They suck you in with this lovely rate for the first 6 months and then it goes up, for us by $40. While the price of cable/internet/phone doesn’t make or break us, it would still be nice to have that $40 back. It tends to take me a while to make phone calls like that. It’s highly likely I’ll end up putting it off until tomorrow…
