that was seriously bouncy  
I've now defined the difference between a real quake and not: a not quake makes you sit up and go "ooh!" and google for the USGS earthquake site. A real quake makes you leap to your feet, seize your laptop, and book out the door as the floor bounces beneath you and the cat streaks for the closet.

...then you come back in and google for the USGS earthquake site.

It's sort of like how sometimes you hear a car backfire and you think, "Was that a gunshot?" but you NEVER hear a gunshot and think, "Was that a car backfiring?" :)

I have actually done the "was that gunshots or firecrackers" thing, to find out they were gunshots later.

quake.usgs.gov is all you have to remember.

Yes, I hit it about a minute after the shaking stopped. I was disappointed that it said "Give us 5 minutes to get a number."

Damn those USGS people! Don't they know we deserve instant gratification!
