Just had an earthquaqe in the bay area. It was a 4.3 in Lafayette which is about 20 odd miles as the California Condor flies. Regina and I were sitting in our bedroom and it felt to us as if the house had been hit from the side. Everything is fine and it was over within seconds. Still it is a scary thing and makes you think how unprepared you really are for these type of things.
