Default 5.7 Cali Quake

Yup I felt this bad boy. Now I'm about 150 miles from the quake so I didn't feel it as strongly as 5.7. Felt like it was in the 3.5 range, but it had a nice rolling effect to it, instead of the jolting up and down movement you get on some quakes. I liked it relaxing. I hope everyone in Greenville is okay. They had a bunch of aftershocks. I can't feel those I'm to far away. 5.7 isn't to strong so it shouldn't have hurt anyone.

I woke my hubby up to tell him we just had an earthquake. It didn't believe me. Seriously dude just cause you didn't wake up and feel it doesn't mean it didn't happen. I grew up here I know my earthquakes. So I checked USGS and sure enough earth at 8:47 PM.

I am also glad you are okay. I lived in Calif for a year, and for that year, not one quake. I was foolish enough to want to feel one.

Take care of your self.

I felt a quake during a visit several years ago to Calif and one in 2011 on the east coast.

Kat, I'm glad that you are OK.

Some years ago I had the same experience as your Hubby did. I was in a small town in Portugal and I slept through a quake. The next day it was the talk of the town and I did not feel it.

Some folks don't have normal hours.

My wife use to work from 3 p.m. to 12 midnight. She would get home around 12:30 a.m.. Like most people she couldn't just hop in bed and go to sleep. She was usually up until 2 or 3 a.m.. We had a rule with friends and family that no one calls before 10:00 a.m., unless it's an emergency or truly important.

If someone made a snide remark on why she was still in bed, I would just tell them that she'll call you at 1:00 a.m. after she gets home from work. I hope you won't mind getting a call then.

A number of years ago we were visiting the in-laws in the Bay Area and I woke up to what I thought was a large truck going by. Nope: It was 4.8 earthquake. It was a strange feeling and I hope that's the largest one I ever encounter.

Take care,
Mike

Mrs. Kuki and I were on our honeymoon in LA when an earthquake hit.

The walls and bed rattled; pictures fell of the wall. And I said to her.... honey, just know that it's not going to be like this every time

We had one here in Washington a couple years ago on election day. It was relatively small, but we're not used to them. Did a lot of damage to the Washington Monument, which is still closed to visitors, with scaffolding up all around it as repairs continue. Rumor has it that some who were in the process of voting when it hit changed their votes as a result. They figured God was saying, "Wrong answer."

Then I was in LA over this past Labor Day and was awakened in the middle of the night by a small one, which the locals termed "cute" the next morning. Woke me up though, fair and square.

WE actually had one in Illinois a few years ago and I did feel it, however slight, sure enough, heard on the news in the AM about the quake... My first visit to California as a kid, there was one too, so I knew the feeling, something you never forget.

My hubby works early it gets up at the butt crack of dawn 5AM. So he often falls asleep in front of the idiot box.

A 5.7 earthquake isn't big enough to put me in danger and this one wasn't close to me. It was close enough to feel a bit of it and it was 'cute'. anything over 6.5 is dangerous. I do appreciate the concern. Lomita Pieta 10/17/89 is the biggest quake I have been in and that was scary 6.9.

Is that why you like cruising? You want to recreate the motion of the honeymoon earthquake?
