We moved into out new apartment in Southern California on the first. And it took less than three weeks for Mother Earth to give us a welcome.
It happened at 19:50, and we were sitting on our new couch when a single sharp jolt, accompanied by a sound like a car hitting the corner of our apartment building in Gardena.
