Wouldn't you know it, we just had our second quake that we could feel here and it was a doozy. The USGS says it was 5.6 and lasted about 30 seconds. That seems about right in hindsight. It woke Elise, freaked Beaker, and sent us skittering for doorways as the house wiggled around. An hour later, Beaker is still shrieking and Elise is having trouble getting back to sleep.

Apparently, the risk of a similarly large one of these on this particular fault is elevated for the next 72 hours, so we'll be making sure we have our various ducks in a row "in case."
