Man, I feel like such a nerd. I was on the usgs.gov site refreshing it for several minutes before it was up there. XD

You, too? LOL!

Yep! One of my earliest memories is of the Loma Prieta quake. Reporting to the usgs.gov has been a family event for years; one hits and we all run to our computers and see who can fire up the site the fastest. We should all have I R NERD tattooed to our foreheads.

Hahahahaha I did this when we had our little babyquake a few years ago.

see, that's why I live all the way over here on the other side of the country. I can deal with hurricanes....

what's that feel like? i've only been in two- they were both middle of the night and i slept through them.

You know what's sad? I'm so out of it, I didn't feel a damn thing.

Had I been there, I probably wouldn't have noticed it.

*is seriously gone*

I love how certain Californians find earthquakes exciting. ;)

Lily's first temblor. Awwww....

We had one? I didn't even notice. Dang! I always seem to miss them.

Didn't feel it here in "Northern TJ"

I was three miles from the epicenter! It was SO AWESOME. I was wondering if someone other than me was going to bring it up on the BPAL forums...
I'm another one who gets to the USGS site before the earthquake does, then hits refresh a gajillion times!

(This is Seismogenic from the forum, if that helps. HI.)

How big was it? :D
Jan. 9th, 2009 06:12 am (UTC)
(They originally said 5.0, but then they downgraded it. Poo.)
I think I felt the P, S, and surface waves arriving separately. So much win!

That must have been so cool. :D The babyquake I experienced was quite small, and it felt like the building was ROLLING. I was like, "What the fuck?" and about the same time, my bestie on the other side of town (we were talking on AIM) said, "What the fuck was THAT?!"
Jan. 9th, 2009 06:18 am (UTC)
Whee, it was a little rumbly thing, and because I am still a quake n00b, it once again took me a good second or two to realize what was happening!

Just saw it on the news teaser; and as long as there's no damage, I'm pretty jealous. I <3 the adrenaline rush. Not so much when there's death and destruction involved, though.
Jan. 9th, 2009 01:18 pm (UTC)
*chuckles* That's like me and the springtime tornadoes. :D

Wait, what? How did I miss the news feed on this?

*kicks Google Reader*
