Baby Earthquakes

I think I just felt my first earthquake/aftershock. There was a moment of my house creaking and the ground shaking... then normal stability. And slight rumbling sound.

So I checked the US government website reocording recent earthquake activity, and lo and behold, there was an earthquake of magnitude 2.7 recorded at 2:01 AM, very close to the time that I felt said ground shaking, that seems to have happened 2 miles away. (And their handy map of what people reported feeling for said earthquake notes "weak - light shaking" and no damage in a bunch of areas near where I live).

Fairly certain it was an earthquake that I felt. Though a baby one, certainly.

Apparently this is normal, here, but it's the first time since I've lived here (now over a year!) that I've felt any such thing.

My first earthquake. Welcome to California. :-P
