A 5.2 shaker hit Borrego Springs near San Diego at 1:05 AM this
morning, rudely waking the whole damn hood. I almost got ou of bed for
this one, but decided to enjoy the ride and read about it this morning.
Still waiting for "the big one"...
I live in pittsburgh, but its a national show carried by HGTV
they also have love it or list it, in 2 versions, property brothers, and other shows. i dont pay much attention to what channel they are on since I hjave a tivo, that records them automatically:)
flip or flops earlier years is on netflix last time i checked......
Don't forget that the San Andreas fault runs right through LA and the
Inland Valley, which is My part of So. Cal. That is what will devistate
Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. I am in the Inland
Empire, which is less than 100 miles from the fault.
The San Andreas fault is but a minor spur of the Cascadia fault. The
Cascadia fault is the "Big One" that lets loose with a Mag 9+ every few
centuries, and the SA fault is just a little one that gives people
something to talk about every few years.
When (not 'if', but 'when') the big one happens, nobody will be talking
about the relatively minor damage in your part of southern California. It
will be completely overshadowed by the utter devastation further north.
Na, most of the people effected will be So. Cal residents, Los Angeles
County, San Bernardino county, riverside county and San Diego county,
so the headlines will be all about So. Cal, not the upper west.
I'm saving up to buy beach front property when the "big one" hits. I
figure most of San bernardino county will be the new continent shore
True dat! The biggies are "further north".
BTW, Kern County is Bakersfield and is NOT considered part of SoCal.
Also, I was there fer that one in '52.
Surfs up!! Seriously! I would watch the "waves" come in, the "waves"
being the ground swells rolling across recently plowed fields. I saw
something similar during the Loma Prieta earthquake, in which I was
also a unwilling participant.
I rode out a few 6+shakers here in So. Cal, including the 69 shaker
that dropped the brand new clover leave bridge complex out by the
grapevine. The ground rolled dramatically where I lived at the time
[Fullerton] and I was sure the ground was going to open up. The shaker
that took out all the bridges in LA was a fun ride for sure!
