Earthquake.

It's a minor one (3.8). However, something boomed over in my neighbor's condo and made me start to put on shoes to get outside. Thankfully, everything stopped right when I got the first shoe on. I do not have the ability to move fast right now.

Argh.

Interesting sidenote: Nevada had a 1.5 earthquake a few hours ago, and 1 person reported it. The Bay Area had a 3.8 approximately 10 minutes ago, and already 247 (sorry, 455 now) people have reported it. Heh.

I'm somewhat surprised that anyone felt a 1.5 quake.

Part of it depends upon the type of terrain you're on.

Well, a 3.8 is roughly 1000 times stronger than a 1.5, so...

11,980 have reported on the CA quake at this point. 3 have reported on the NV quake.

Another factoid in our favor, of course, is that I'm sure Californians are much more familiar with the USGS earthquake reporting system than Nevadans.

I didn't notice the quake at all. Granted, I was a few miles further from the epicenter at the time than you. But I put that down more as general obliviousness.
