Little Earthquake

We just had a little earthquake at our house...Only about 3 seconds or so. Enough time for me to wonder why the house was shaking and realize what it was, then it was done. Well, it seems exciting to me but you all are probably yawning...

I'm not yawning, I'm wondering if that is all there is to it?
Have you ever been through one? Hopefully, that's is all you get.
Just stay safe!

We didn't feel it here Cora. And that's just fine with me. I don't like it when our house wiggles.

We do get earth quakes here in Wa. Luckily not very often and mostly they are small.

We get them in Ohio once in a blue moon. Barely enough to notice though. Especially when I lived right by the airport. My house shook from all the planes, so when we had a quake I didn't even notice it.

I've been in another one before. That one that hit Seattle about 4 years ago. That one was big 7. something on the rictor scale? Is that right pds? I can't remember but it was exciting.

I lived in north San Diego County, CA, and we felt them now and then. You reminded me of one of my last ones before moving here. I shake my leg up and down a lot. One day I was sitting on the couch with my mom. I said, "Did you feel that earthquake?" She said, "No, I thought you were shaking your leg!"

Thanks so much Sierra! I was looking for something like that after it happened but didn't have very much luck or maybe it wasn't up yet. Wow 4.0 I didn't think it would be that big!
