I Live in San Francisco and You Don't #7

Thirty minutes ago we had a bit of an earthquake. I was babysitting my next door neighbors when I felt a big thud hit the house, as if a large and clumsy animal had cannonballed the roof. But no animal can make the whole earth shake and can echo that unmistakable low rumble of the earth moving. Within moments I was on my laptop on the usgs page, myfriends from all over the bay area instant messaging me with their reactions. I called my mom to make sure she was ok.

Then I called my husband who was at home not 50 feet from me.

He didn't feel a thing.

That's so wierd! Our house shook quite a lot. I also originally thought there was an animal on the roof.
