I was reading my email when all of the sudden the entire apartment started shaking. It lasted for about 5 seconds. My first thought was a car must have run into my building...but a building wouldn't shake for 5 seconds if it was hit by a car. I figured it must have been an earthquake. I jumped up and got in the door frame like I heard I was supposed to do. The quake was over by the time I got to the door frame. I checked the news and sure enough, the bay area was hit by a 4.2 magnitude earthquake!
It wasn't scary and it was over very quick...but it certainly is a bit unsettling in retrospect!
