Had a 5.4 here a couple years ago, felt like a truck hit the house. Went back to sleep after making sure everything was intact. Then again, I live next to a UPRR yard and feel like there's a quake every night.

Yeah man! I keep hearing that we are already overdue...been hearing that for what 15 years now? as long as it does not catch me in BART under the the Bay waters...yep, long commute for me every day...Man we get some beauties out here. LA and SF have gotten hammered pretty good.
I hate to say this but we haven't had a big one in a long time.[/b]
"Baby Quake" LOL ...I like it LOLbackcountry. that bart bay tube is super safe. it isnt rigid. just laying on the bay floor. good place to be. my wife rides it everyday, so it better be safe.
glad all the Illinois rookies got a baby quake. piece of cake right?[/b]
