    Sounded like someone banged on the walls and windows. 2 bangs. That's it.

    My friend who called at the time heard it too.

    Much cooler.

    Though, speaking of NorCal, it's fertilizing time and GOD it smells.

    Yeah we felt it too and I pretty much knew it was the Space Shuttle landing. Earthquakes have a different feel.

    I just need to get the feel of an earthquake at work. The other ones didn't feel like the ones I felt in college or home.

    Heck I didn't know that the shuttle was coming back today. I thought it landed already.

    Was anyone outside during this time? How's the experience?

    Presumably the sonic boom from re-entry? From how far away can it be heard?

    I miss that. I remember as a kid hearing the sonic booms on a more regular basis. Actually, I miss the earthquakes too...

    Most of all...I miss In-N-Out...I could really use a 4x4 animal style right now...
