I Officially Became a Real Californian!

Because living in California for 27 years (minus a few in Texas and Idaho) doesn't make you California, but experiancing an earthquake while living in California makes you a real Californian.

Last night, just after 11:30pm, there was a small earthquake. They say about 4.7 magnitude. Here is the map:

So yeah, That's that. Not a big deal at all. There wasn't even any damage anywhere. But now I can say that I felt an earthquake. I used to think that they weren't a big deal and I couldn't understand why people would freak out. Now I get it, at least a little.

I was half asleep when it started and it woke me up and I couldn't figure out what was going on. I didn't know if it was just my bed moving or what. Then it kept going. I realized that it must be an earthquake and I wondered if it was going to get worse. Thankfully it didn't. I'll be honest, I got a little nervous. It felt like rumbling waves.  I immediately got up and asked Christiana if she felt it, who was watching TV in the living room. She didn't and was so bummed that she didn't. :)

No one else in my office felt it either. At least I know I'm not going crazy. :)

As "exciting" as this was, I hope it doesn't happen again.
