Our first quake

The USGS doesn’t know the magnitude yet, but Anna and I just felt a little earthquake this morning. We’re on the third floor of our building, so there would be a little magnification effect, but I think the quake was pretty small. I’m guessing somewhere in the 2.5 to 3.0 range. Maybe a little smaller.

Take a peek at the USGS data for this quake.

UPDATE: Looks like the USGS won’t want me as a magnitude estimator. They’re putting the quake at 4.1. I was off by a long shot.
