    All the students were freaking out. Most of them haven't been around long enough to know the Whittier-Narrows or Northridge earthquakes.

    last major one I felt was back in 2000, when one of the same magnitude rocked Napa at fuckin 1:30am. I remember hearing everything (including a giant glass hutch) falling over in the apartment below and the lady who lived there screaming. Then I got up to check on my sister and saw a record cabinet had fallen over on her, then we went outside and waited for like half hour in the freezing cold for a friend (our dad was outta town that weekend) to come get us.

    I still remember the '89 quake too...I remember walking down the hallway when it was happening, and our house was rolling from left to right, and then I reached the living room where my sister was sitting on the couch rocking her head back and fourth while she stared at the static on the TV. It was trippy.

    No. LBCC will be remaining open for instruction and work. Funny how frantic schools get when this shit happens. So, Leo, I would go and take your final and be done with it.

    If this was a pre-shock, I hope the big one is tomorrow after I'm in Puerto Rico.

    I don't think 5.8 magnitudes are a pre-shock normally.
