5.6 earthquake tonight, about 10 miles NNE from where I live. It was only (they're saying) 5 miles down, which means you feel it more. First, the big shaking jolt, and then rolling waves that went on forever, or so it felt. All told, about a minute, and no damage here at our place, unless you count a very scared Pandora who took about an hour to peek out from under her safe place under the couch.
You know, it felt like the Loma Prieta in '89. Funny, I was just talking with friends at work this afternoon about my bridge phobia, and how that's directly related to earthquakes, and how we haven't had a "good" one in a while. Eerie.
