      Oh dear everyone down south! (I am in Seattle!) I hope everyone is okay. Sounds like you are but just wanted to be sure!! I remember feeling a few up here, they are unsettling to me.

      :squeeze: To you all!

        Thanks - .Pacifica we are fine...I have some friends in SJ and their home phone service is down right now. Also, my brother is down there and they have some damage to their home. Hopefully just minor. On the radio they are saying people have felt the quake as far up as Arnold in the Sierra Foothills. I think this must have been stronger.

            That's what they were saying on the news. They said in San Jose it sounded like an airplane was flying right over the news room.

                  It's weird how it always takes a moment to realize what;s happening or how you always seem to hear them before you feel them. I thought it was a really strong gust of wind whipping by our house at first!

                        It never fails.
                        That happened to me about 3 years ago as a freshman.

                          We're just a few miles from the epicenter (sp?) too. It did feel pretty big from where we are and we also thought it was a plane going over. We live near an "inactive" military base so we get lots of huge military planes at all times of the day. The strange part was that it kept rolling for what seemed like a full minute or two but they keep saying on the TV that it was only 15 seconds or so.

                            Your friends in RWC are good too. Glad you guys didn't slide down the hill into the ocean.

                            It woke up my daughter. My wife was out at dinner with a friend. I am not happy with AT&T since her cell phone was unreachable for a while after the quake.

                              I'm glad to hear everybody is doing good. Nothing felt up here in Santa Rosa, though. I wonder if we'll get one now that the South Bay got "hit."

                                Fun thing to do while killing time during an earthquake:

                                Turn on a local live talk radio station and after the delay you can hear some funny stuff sometimes.

                                I'm glad this was a smallish one. The '89 earthquake was a bad one.

                                  Yeah- this was nowhere near Loma Prieta- nowhere near as long or as strong.

                                  We're just a few miles south of the epicenter. It felt fairly strong and was more of a rolling motion (vs. the jerky motion of Loma Prieta). We had some things fall and break, but nothing major. The animals are pretty freaked out though- thunderstorms yesterday, earthquakes today.

                                  Our phones were out- both cell and landlines, but we didn't lose power.

                                    I was in my car driving so I didn't feel it but the second I stepped into my apartment, my roommate asked if I felt it. She got all freaked out and ran outside when it happened.
                                    Everything in our apt is fine although the light fixture in my bathroom turned to the side. I'm worried about my classroom which is in Alum Rock....and I have a parent teacher conference tomorrow morning at 7:30A.M.

                                    My best score ever!

                                      Immediately after I got a call from Skywaygrrl who felt it in Hercules also.

                                      My sister felt it in Turlock
                                      Another one in Stockton feeling it. I was on the phone talking to my sister. I recalled how the 89 Loma Prieta quake felt--strong but distant. Jimmie didn't feel it, but our son Steven did. He had the news tuned in within moments.

                                      I'm pretty sure we've had bike rides pass near the epicenter. (I'm thinking Calaveras Road--a popular one for local cyclists.)

                                        We felt it up in Emeryville
                                        Growing older is manditory
                                        Growing up is however, optional

                                          I didn't feel anything but that's a good size quake. Where I live, we've had a couple of small quakes within the last couple of days. There was one this morning at 5:25am near Fontana, CA. I feel the slightest quakes and I never get used to it.

                                          I just hope everyone is ok in San Jose or near there.
