So a bit over an hour ago, I'm playing WoW, and I feel this weird sensation in my knees as they rest on my ergo-chair-thingy. I couldn't figure out what it might be. Then my monitor started shaking noticeably. At first I thought perhaps P was in her massager-thingy, since it makes powerful vibrations, but she wasn't up yet. A cat under the desk? No. A suddenly wobbly disk drive? No. Earthquake? NAHHHHH!

Well, P just told me it was, and I checked the news: This has a map of the location which is around 290 miles away. I knew there was a fault down there and they've been saying for years that there was going to be a big one. There's an AP article in the Seattle Post-Intellegencer about it. Also, CNN.

5.4, so not terribly bad as earthquakes go, but surprising I could see or even feel it here. I've never experienced an earthquake before (and yes, I know they happen all the time, but we don't notice, but I'm talking noticeable ones), and it's weird, but I don't really think it counts, as I was so far away from the epicenter and if I'd been asleep, I'd have probably missed it. Klemmiwinks, J-Lo? you're both closer. Notice anything?

Oh my gosh! How bizarre!!! I'm glad you were up to experience it - I can't imagine what it'd be like. I've never been in an earthquake either.

It was just so odd. I think if I'd've realized what was happening, I'd've been much more excited.

Freaky. I'll take tornadoes over earthquakes any day.

In other news.... BZZZZZT! Thank you for playing. The correct answer is "Men at Work".

Dammit. :P It's funny, I didn't even think tornado until after I'd slept. Freaky-deaky

You were playing WoW at 4:30 AM!? I'd make a disparaging comment about getting a life, but somehow I think I wouldn't be covering new ground. ;)

I work late; I stay up late. I was actually about to get ready for bed when it happened.
