Did you feel that?

I just felt one of our lovely earthquakes. A 4.4 originating from Glen Ellen.

    Darnit you posted first! :) Yeah I felt that, and I was in the middle of a phone interview. Once I experienced an earthquake in the middle of taking the SAT. Looks like a 4-pointer. To me it felt like a little wiggle, then a pause, then a larger shake.

    I was in Albany and didn’t feel it at all! Though it might have been because of the personal activity I was involved in at the moment.

    I felt that, and it’s my first too.

    Aren’t you guys scared of a major earthquake? I mean, I’ve been to SF in july 06 and I would have defintely kinda freaked out if the earth beneath me would start quaking all of a sudden.

    I was never afraid of earthquakes (I used to “surf” them) until Loma Prieta. Now it’s more like: “wow, i hope this ends” and I also look around for falling brick. But no, not that afraid. More afraid of slipping on ice while driving, wind gusts, tornados, and tsunamis. Yeah, and hurricanes. Locusts would be bad.

    Naw, I’m not scared of one. And I’ve been here since 1979. The “pretty big one” in 1989 was of course the biggest.

    The best thing about earthquakes is that they’re short. Most are 5-10 seconds. A big one lasts 45-90 seconds. The Big One might last two minutes. After that, it’s fighting fires and cleanup. And the best thing is that it’ll be another 50-100 years before another one.

    Compare that to hurricanes. If you live in Pensacola you might get hit every other year! Heck with that!

    You are hilarious

    Just to be clear: someone did feel the earth move.
