Glad all is well.

I am terrified of earthquakes, though I've never experience one big enough oto feel. In west Michigan we get plenty of severe storms, some floods, a good amount of tornadoes, more blizzards and ice storms that you can imagine, but you get used to it. It just seems like big earthquakes mean big mudslides mean hundreds of thousands of people trapped or dead. I'd take a hurricane, blizzard, or tornado anyday - at least you can see these on the radar.

Didn't feel anything either.
Probably has to do with the time.
5.24 AM

This is exactly what I'm most scared off: the major one happening in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping on the level ground of an appartment building and the entire building collapsing on top of me.
On the other hand, if I'm asleep, I won't notice and kinda die "peacefully".

In the 5 years that I've lived here.
I have only felt 1 earthquake.
And it happened when I just moved here.
Back in 2001.
I totally didn't realize what was happening.
I heard the windows rattling/vibrating and thought a big truck had just driven too close passed them with too much speed.
Then it registered that the floor was also rolling slightly.
By the time I fully understood what was going on, it was already over.

When I was in Japan last summer there was apparently a fairsized earthquake and I definently didn't feel a thing, which is sorta strange since, having never felt one before, you'd thnk I'd notice this new thing

And again I didn't feel it.
But I think I'm further down south than you are, Sicy.
And around that time (8.08 PM) I just headed out to go eat dinner.

This worries me. Two earthquakes happening in a short amount of time.

Earthquakes...

I'm glad I've never felt one before!

It was kind of cool actually.. I felt like this wave came over me for a few seconds, and I looked at my drink and the liquid in it was moving. But then I looked over at the cats and they were sound asleep so I thought I was just imagining things because I thought cats were supposed to freak out during earthquakes

I felt the couch move a little. At first I thought it was my dog leaning against it, but she was in the other room.

It's not really a cause for concern. There are literally hundreds of quakes in any given week in California.

I did not feel the earthquake, I was driving at the time. I remember the 1989 earthquake so vividly still. Like someone said earlier, Northern CA is so fucked. We are long over due for a big one.

Your dog has the ability to move couches with people sitting in them?! See, I'd be more worried about that than a few tremors.
