Blogging Thru The Earthquake

I have been in both California earthquakes, in 89' and in 94'. In 89', I was in my car and after the shaking stopped, I opened the car door and in a severe moment of dizziness sprawled to the ground in a partial black out. In 94' the quake hit around 4:00AM and woke me up. I thought my apartment was going to come down on my head as I tried to shake the sleep from my consciousness. Traffic lights outside my window suddenly erupted ablaze like a bomb went off. The sound of a jackhammer rifled through my ears and I waited frozen in place until it finally subsided."

My apartment is shaking now.

I had just finished posting my latest entry when I felt my wheelchair moving. I thought I was dizzy because I have not been getting enough sleep lately. A short while later, I realised that it was another earthquake when I heard my door rattling. I quickly woke the maid up....

Blogging has fried our brains. Instead of evacuating after the tremor, we, bloggers staying in high rise apartments, sit here n blog about it, oblivious to the risk should the building topple over or collapse...

296 people have died so far in Indonesia. Good luck Peter Tan.

That is a mother of an earthquake. 94' quake in Los Angeles registered a 6.7
