Earthquake

mood: shaken

That was a big quake. My meeting was interrupted by a gentle yet rather long shaking. Preliminary auto data suggested a 6.5 quake in the middle of the california coast.

Hope things weren't too bad for you bay area people.

I really should install those earthquake straps on my bookshelves.

Thanks for the info. I don't know if anyone up here felt it, but I sure didn't

I felt the quake. I actually assumed it was merely a side-effect of one of the meds i'm one (i was thinking "oooh, it feels like the room is swaying back and forth, how odd") until i heard other people saying "Did you feel that? Yeah, i did too!" :)

Was it a relief to find that it was something external as opposed to a side effect?

Actually, no, relief is not the right word. Amusement is more at it. I hadn't realized how much i simply shrugged off random abnormal sights/sounds/sensations as just my brain and/or body acting oddly.

Hadn't even made the news. :( Glad to hear everyone seems to be mostly okay...shaken as opposed to beaten or dropped on. Keep us East Coasters informed!

Be well!
