What are the odds of a 7+ hitting in the middle of upgrading Windows?

We're far enough away that all it did was shake the ground and swing a bunch of stuff, but it lasted a lot longer than most quakes I've experienced.

@KelsonV I hope everyone's okay, I just heard about this.

@JordiGH No damage here, just frayed nerves. But then we're about 130 miles away from the epicenter.

@KelsonV All I can say is I hope you have your go-pack ready... I've been reading how this period has been uncommonly quiet for southern California.

@OldBrushNewPaper Yeah, I grew up in the 80s and 90s and earthquakes were relatively common, and then the last couple of decades have been, as you say, a lot quieter.
