Earth Quake (Vanity)
Vanity | 01/07/2011 | Vendome

Posted on 01/07/2011 4:16:28 PM PST by Vendome

Just felt a pretty decent quake here in San Jose. Not enough to get me off the couch.

It was weird. It's like it was taking batting practice witha few fits and starts then... a good slow rumble.

I am guessing it lasted 3 seconds.

Anyone else feel it?

Nothing on the News.

Twitter is gay and likely caused the quake.

you are in MP?

It was a 4.4 or 4.1, I guess. Channel 4 can’t seem to make up their mind.

The hilarious part is I am taking care of my friend who is 100 and just sort of looked me smiling.

Went it stopped we both broke out laughing.

She said “Pretty good ride”.

ROTFLMAO!!!!! She is so funny!

Didn’t feel anything over here in Modesto, but heard a single “pop” here in the house.

Midwesto? Well. there was a “2” something at Seven Trees.

I don’t think I even notice them when they are 3.5 or less.

This one was just funny for the way it started and then my friend and I were laughing about it afterward.

That’s the only reason I was inspired to post the vanity.

I’m in Willow Glen in a house that has survived 1906 and 1989.

Didn’t even phase me or my friend and I feel stupid for even posting this vanity.

I guess when you’re 100, you don’t run for the streets no matter how strong it is.

She don’t sweat nothing.

She actually said “I thought it was gas” and then she started giggling.

She cracks me up.

Interetingly, we had a very small 2.6 NE of Seattle @ 2:36 this afternoon.When I went to usgs website to confirm, I saw that central Alaska had a 3.3 about a minute earlier. West coast must be shifting.

I didn’t feel anything.

I did.

But it wasn't an earthquake.

A bang...

Yeah, kind of like that. Only more like "BOOM!"

;-)
