Waking Up in Earthquake Country

Jul. 20th, 2007 | 05:58 am

4.2 earthquake The bedroom windows rattled briefly as if our neighbor's child was bouncing through their house.

Vector and I woke up, and I wondered if their family was leaving early on a car trip.  There was no more noise, though, and the other four of the pack (redozdachs, Syntax, Audit, and Array) slept through it all.

Nothing out of place in our house.  Maybe single-storey frame construction buildings really have an advantage.

Details on the 4:42 movement from the US Geological Service.
