Must be a slow news day.


So I had tea today with the viper fish. I had green tea and the viper fish had chiffon cake. All was well. Until...

5.4 on the Richter scale.

When the café is atop a parking garage, 5.4 feels like 5.8.

Anyway, nothing happened here in Los Angeles. I was getting calls from Germany about an hour after the earthquake happened. Folks, it was no big deal. Must be a slow news day in Deutschland. Energy along the faults released: That's a good thing. That makes the next BIG ONE smaller. Thank you for your calls and emails.

But, yeah, I did stock up on water and freshened up the granola bars in the earthquake kit.

I'm glad you are okay !! I read about the earthquake an hour after it happend, but at the same time remembered reading you comment on the tipi. So I went back to klickundblick to check the time you posted your comment. After I again checked the news on USAtoday.com, I went relieved to bed.

Now I'm really relieved to know you won't starve if the big one takes place (hopefully it will never happen!) ...

XO, Chris

Great idea! I will never leave the house again without stuffing the pockets of my cargo shorts with lots of snacks... just in case of an earthquake... or a traffic jam... or just cuz I'm feelin' a bit peckish... :0)
