no, really. about 15 minutes ago susanville, which is about 200 miles north of us, was hit with a 5.7 temblor. we felt it here. really damn peculiar feeling. i was reading the new yorker at the dining room table. my chair began to shake, sway actually. i thought it was nick shaking my chair. i looked behind me. then anna who was sitting on the couch told nick to stop shaking the table! we all leapt to our feet and said, earthquake! we went outside. our neighbor was on her porch and asked if that was an earthquake. we said, yes. then we turned on the tv and the local news immediately cut in regular programming because of the temblor. the feeling of an earthquake is kind of like the rocking of a ship at sea only that we are on land and the land does not normally move. we are waiting for aftershocks. there are usually aftershocks. all in all we are just fine but a little excited and a tad weirded out.
