A little earthquake

Day off from work. I was sitting and reading, eating a late breakfast, when I felt our house begin to shake gently. It went on for a good 2-3 seconds, long enough for me to start thinking about ducking under the table. Then it was over. If I hadn’t been sitting and reading I could easily have missed feeling it entirely.

USGS Web site says it was magnitude 4.1 quake centered somewhere around Milpitas.
