Anybody Feel the Earthquake?

I know there are at least a few Bay Area dwellers ’round here.

USGS says 5.6 with an epicenter at alum rock (just north of San Jose).  See link for past week’s activity also.

My story:

I’m in Marin sitting in my rocking recliner with rocking foot stool and petting the dog.

I don’t feel a thing.

Mrs. Night Owl, who is sitting next to me in her four on the floor comfy chair, is just about to say again what an idiot Tweety is when all of a sudden she asks if I feel the place shaking.

I say no, and go back to petting the dog.

I guess I have an earthquake absorbing recliner.

  1. howdy neighbor!

    It was a definite roller…in two parts for me. Told the spouse I thought it was about a 6…maybe south bay. I’m thinking I’ve been in CA too long, getting pretty good at guessing where and how big!

    Wasn’t ON at the time though.

  2. It was a fairly mild shaking but it lasted a lot longer than any other EQ I’ve felt. The windows in our house rattled.  My cats were very concerned. 

  3. and no I didn’t feel a thing in LA. My parrot – our alarm system – slept soundly through it as well.
