The Earth in LA is Still Still

I've been on the ground a little over an hour now here at LAX, and so far the ground hasn't moved.
I know, I know, for regular readers of this blog, you've got to be greatly disappointed that there's been not even a remnant of natural disaster thus far.
But, remember, AA did cancel my original flight overnight, so that's something. And, don't forget, I am headed to the Bay Area, so anything is possible.
I've experienced three earthquakes during my short time on the planet, and the first one was exactly where I'm headed for: San Jose.
So, lightning may not strike twice in the same place twice, but earthquakes...
Speaking of terra firma shaking underfoot, not unlike my Beijing experience back on May 12th, Twitter's increasingly the first vehicle for delivering the news of earthquakes.
Check out this Twitter search on the query "earthquake" to get the gist.
And thanks to my L.A.-based colleague Mary for pointing it out.
Now, get back to standing in that doorframe!
