I have a model A-1 Skyraider that tipped over. But I think it'll pull through.

Well, a 5.8 is still a pretty big shocker. I live in socal, so we are bound to get an enormous earthquake in the future with the San Andreas fault. :( We had one the same magnitude in the summer. Scared the hell out of me. Glad you guys are okay though.

haha well earthquakes are so rare here that from the looks on many people's faces when it happened I'd not be shocked if a few people had heart attacks

I was amused and reminded of a low pass at an airshow and shouted at my mom to not stand under statues. One statue and one picture in the office fell but neither broke. My mom said she thought it was the air conditioner and then that's when it was really funny because I was like "no way its going to shake like this whenever the air conditioner is on" XD my friend hid under her desk. I kept sitting in my little chair. They evacuated the building. The UPS guy who was there at the time to deliver a package to me got scared and drove off with my package. I'm so irritated with him. He better come back. The end.
