7.2 Earthquake

So, I've found the one thing I don't like about living in Southern California: EARTHQUAKES.  This afternoon, while the boys were sleeping, there was a 7.2 magnitude earthquake, which shook our entire condo and created a lot of noise as well.  It took me a few seconds to realize exactly what was going on.....and then to realize that it wasn't stopping, so I grabbed the boys out of their beds and ran outside and downstairs, where several other people were starting to gather as well.  We felt several aftershocks as well. We did not have any major structural damage here, but we did have a few things fall off our shelves.  In the pictures below, you an see the cans of soda above tipped over on the shelf, and two of them fell below to the top of the washer and dryer, and the box of Brita filters fell from the shelf to the floor.  And, in the boys' room, their dresser drawers were shaken slightly open.
