Earthquake in SENSURROUND!

Yes, we did indeed experience a 5.8 earthquake in Los Angeles this morning. I was at work when it happened, but it didn't feel very rough here in the Westside, and there are no reports of damage. People wandered outside and stared up at the sky for a bit (this is standard earthquake activity, and no one fully understands it). I ducked under my desk because I have this Pavlovian response wired into my brain from elementary school drills. The rolling sensation was gradual, but it lasted for long enough to make everyone nervous. Afterwards, it was an excuse not to get work done for about half an hour.
