Our First Earthquake

This evening we felt our first real California earthquake. Does that make us Real Californians now? The happy picture above is meant to reassure any jumpy family members or friends that might be worried.

According to the USGS, the quake happened pretty far from here, but it was a 4.2 so it’s interesting to know what one of those feels like from a distance. One can even subscribe to an RSS feed of the latest tectonic action.

Maybe we should get that earthquake preparedness kit together, eh?
