quake... this was just practice.... ya know the kind where the natives
laught at the new folks... but still strong enough that maybe about
half sought doorways.
Anyway, Costume College is at the opposit end. If you look on a freway
map... Costume College is NW of the 101/405. The one and only place
they even closed a ramp was all the way down south and east... a county
or two over (depending on how you count stuff in that area.
Here's a map: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?
Van Nuys isn't even on that map. You can see a label for Alhambra...
and the only thing that fell there was two paperbacks off a stack that
was like a foot and a half high waiting to be filed. There will be
shelf dammage on top of the quake, and a few thinkgs fall/break
elsewhere... but you just go w/ the flow. I was out a lot closer to
the epicenter for dinner, and a lot of folks were out... more in a
party mood. (Californians are VERY casual about their quakes, though
there will be a run on batteries and misc suplies in the next week....
this quake was just PRACTICE.)
Oh... and to add costume content to this... ran by FIDM real quickly
to see the opening of their Emmy costume display. Everything stayed up
just fine... and they even though it was curious that I called to
confirm they were still open. (They're in downtown LA.)
