No time like the present to freshen up your earthquake kit. You do have water, food, cash, a radio and flashlight batteries put away, right? Shoes under your bed so you'll be able to get out of bed when the windows explode? An extinguisher to put out the fire? A phone number to call out of state so loved ones elsewhere in L.A. will know you're okay? You know what they say: every day is earthquake season in Socal.
