First Los Angeles Earthquake - And I missed it!

And I completely missed it! We had just been let out for lunch and we were walking outside at that time, and none of us felt it. We had no indication of an earthquake until we came back, and the elevators were still offline. We had to trudge back up eight flights of stairs to the classroom.

I've gotten to witness L.A. traffic, and L.A. smog, and I completely missed my first L.A. earthquake. :-(

Maybe next time.
