All shook up

Bodmin - Before Earthquake

Bodmin - After Earthquake

An earthquake in Cornwall? Who knew?

Well, apparently they do happen – and one  struck  the town of Bodmin early Sunday morning, registering 2.2 and lasting a few seconds, according to news reports.

I’ve lived through quite a few earthquakes here in California, but can’t recall anything along a 2.2. It’s the kind of geologic activity that probably doesn’t make big news here and makes me realize that I really am a hardened Californian at heart. I can’t help referencing the earthquake scene in “L.A. Story.”
