This earthquake started almost as though it were a thunderstorm underfoot. It rapidly built up a crescendo and just kept going. I spilled my peppermint tea because my chair was moving so much. I heart something fall off a shelf but I'm not sure where it occurred because it looks like everything's okay.

This earthquake was not all that fun because I kept wondering when it was going to stop. I have no idea where the cats are---three black shadows disappeared and they won't come out from wherever they're hiding. Poor things.

I just filled out a report online at USGS Earthquakes Hazard Program and the intensity of the earthquake I felt was a VI---which means the shaking was strong and the damage was light.
