Thing is, I don't think you get "used" to it as if to say "Ah, 5.8, 5.4, no big deal". It does some good work on giving your nerves the jitters but all in all, not a bad quake. Just some gentle rolling the first 10 seconds but after that it intensified a little, to make things somewhat more nerve wracking and uncomfortable. Usually, quakes that start out a bit weak generally last as weak but it was a first for me to feel a quake that shook steadier throughout. All quakes are different and I'm glad it wasn't a sharp, damaging jolt. We didn't feel any of the aftershocks that were going on at the epicenter and so, no harm done.
And if you're planning on coming out to Southern California, now is a fantastic time. This summer has been comfortable for the most part with plenty of sunshine and no oppressive heat at all.
