Shaken, not stirred...

At 9pm, we had a quake. Centered just 7 miles south down the highway from my place. Rated as a 4.1.

It lasted long enough for me to realize...OH SHIT...and run for a doorway. Things shook and creaked. The damn TV even moved!!!


Hey, you're in Cali know it happens. Well, sure, but...

You never know when they'll happen. And that's what shakes me up.

Freaks me out when they happen. Any other time, I don't think about them.

Talked to Spencer, who is over at his Dad's in San Francisco. And he felt it. 24 miles away.

He was shook up, I was shook up.

Back to normal now. Sheez.


  1. I'm over 50 miles away from it (south end of San Jose) - and I felt it too! Though admittedly it was quite mild down here. Just some noise and what felt like someone stomping around the house.

  2. Ohh I missed it! But my mom IM'd me to let me know and to make sure the kitties wouldn't be too shaken up.

    I don't think I could ever live anywhere that has earthquakes... I have terrible balance on my own.
