My first earthquake!

Tuesday October 30, 2007 @ 08:34 PM (UTC)

Thus satisfying Reason #1 for moving down here, I have been in an earthquake. According to my cousin who has lived in the Bay Area her whole life, it was actually a fairly long one (one doesn’t like to guess at the duration oneself, being a brand-new quake observer!). It rattled and shook the heebie-jeebies out of our little house, but I haven’t found a single thing knocked over so far, and the kitties kept their reaction down to a tiny hissy fit. It was very interesting indeed—I could feel the motion of the Love waves!

And, tho’ Ryan poo-pooed me when I said, “Oh c’mon, that was pretty significant! That had to be a four or something!”, it was a 5.6, under fifteen miles away.
