In my visits to and living in the west coast over the past five years, I've been through probably half a dozen small-to-middlin' earthquakes (the biggest I think was a 5.1). I've managed to sleep through or just not notice every single one of them, which has always irked me somewhat.

Last night I was woken up by what sure as hell felt like an earthquake - the bed was shaking rhythmically, maybe half an inch lateral movement, for about twenty seconds. After determining that nothing was falling over, I just gleefully rode it out and then went back to sleep.

This morning, I woke up and checked the USGS site. Nothing. I finally, finally get an earthquake that I actually notice, and it looks like I dreamed the whole fucking thing.


(And as a disclaimer, no, I'm not trolling for natural disasters here - I'm not sure I can explain why I have this bizarre urge to experience an earthquake. Yen for new experiences, maybe.)
