We just had a nice 5.6 magnitude earthquake here in the East Bay. I was playing video games with noise cancelling headphones in the kids’ room when I felt the desk shake. I was about to get all over the kids for not sleeping, and saw Dylan crawling out of his bunk. But when I took the headphones out, I finally realized that the whole house was freaking shaking and all kinds of crap was falling on the floor. Chandeleirs were swinging all over the place. So naturally, the first thing I did was to look it up on the USGS site and register my ratings. Then Twitter. Then blog.
This reminds me: I really need to quit playing video games and go practice.
