Shake it up

| 1 Comment

Was sitting here working at my dining room table half an hour ago when the room started shaking. I thought at first it was my upstairs neighbor moving something big, then something really big, then I realized that I don't have an upstairs neighbor.

After another second or two, I figured out it must be an earthquake and moved toward the door, but it stopped before I could get there.

Didn't knock anything off my shelves, but my hanging flying-squirrel stuffy swung back and forth quite a bit. Whee!

Turns out the quake was a magnitude 5.6, centered near San José. See also the reporting map.

If you felt the quake, stop by the USGS site and report your experience!

Heh. My journal entry about the quake also had "Shake it up" as the subject line. Biggest quake I've felt in my seven years in California.
