    Just had a good sized earthquake here in the California Bay Area. But I missed it because I was in the car.

    Preliminary reports are 5.6

    First relatively big one I've had since being a parent.

    First relatively big one I've had since living in a two story house.

    Guess it's not so weird how my perspective is so different from a few short years ago. Can be scary stuff.

    Just yesterday my kids experienced thunder and lightning for the first time. Two neat days for them.

    That one in '89 was crazy compared to this one.

    Insane.

    I still have a scar from flying glass.

    I believe, if I heard correctly, this latest quake was centered about 10 miles away from me.

    Felt it here in El Cerrito. I have only lived in CA for about a year. Been in El Cerrito about a month and a half, live in the Sunset District about 9 months, this is the biggest one I have felt yet. Put a little bit of a scare in me....

    The dam news interrupted Bones! Dam them!
