4.4...6:11pm...earthquake...off Leo Carrillo St. Bch...

[click on title to go to offical gov't site about it]

we felt it! the cats and i were resting in bed as i've come down with a migraine last nite...had to call out sick today to which totally pissed me off. 2 more months until benefits and zomig again. i hope i can make it until then without getting fired for having them. i digress...suddenly i felt the room rocking & the windows creaking. it's crazy to realize i can really tell the difference between traffic shakes & earthquakes. i must be becoming a true cali-fornian. N was in the other room and did't feel it, and thought i was crazy which now i can prove i'm not!
