My first earthquake

This will be a short post, but I thought it would be interesting to share my first experience with an earthquake. Curry and I were in bed still, it was probably anywhere between 6 and 7 am, and while I can't say for sure if the quake woke me up, I was laying there and definitely noticed the bed was shaking. I was still pretty hazy, and wasn't exactly sure if I was imagining things for the first few seconds, but being that the tremors lasted for about a minute, I figured I wasn't hallucinating.

I asked Roger if he noticed anything, and while he said he didn't, we may have only been able to feel it because Curry's bedroom is in the basement. The quake was only a 2 to 3, and from what I could find out, was about 100 miles away.

Here's a link to what I found out about it.

Anyways, it was pretty cool.

WOW! I checkout out the earthquake map but there were too many to choose from. Which one was yours? Did you know about the earthquakes before you moved there?
