My parents and in laws in Calabasas and Agoura Hills saw overhead ceiling lights swaying and my parents' grandfather clock pendulum must have been disturbed because the clock stopped at 3:40.

god probably had nothing to do with the lack of damage.

I was at my parents house at the time in OC and felt it pretty good. It went on for a long time. Their clock did the same thing.

an expression, not to be taken seriously, but maybe God did have something to do with it?

I was in the car and didn't even know about it until I go home. I missed the Whittier quake by being in the car too.

Maybe Santa Claus had something to do with it too. Anything is possible.

It's interesting that people thank god for unlikely good things but no one thanks god for unlikely bad things.

Thank god 200,000 people were killed in Haiti?
Thank god for cancer?

I'm not worried; god probably doesn't exist. It's probably everybody's imagination as a result of the brainwashing their parent's subjected them to.

I was having a late lunch with a friend at California Pizza Kitchen in Irvine. While my friend was talking, I felt the ground shaking. At first, I thought my friend was shaking the table or his legs. But, I started to notice that the windows of the restaurant to shake, that's when everybody else took notice. The shaking felt like a sway from side to side. It seemed to last for a while-something like 45 seconds to 1 minute. The overhead lights were swinging wildly.

It was a strong quake, that's for sure...it slowed down and then picked up speed for another phase...it didn't roll and it didn't suddenly jerk....this one was different......we definitely felt it in Laguna Niguel. Lot of water sloshed out of the pool, things hanging on the wall were askew, open doors all over the house almost closed all the way...clocks with pendulums stopped. The aftershocks were fairly strong, too....
