Quake 2

Just because I like keeping you posted on this stuff, I sat through another earthquake this evening. My second one. Yay!

It was minor - just a 3.0 - so it kind of felt like something bumped into the apartment, and it was over in less than a second. I actually had to look it up here to confirm it was for real; this was probably the kind of quake that, if you're a native, doesn't even count. Oh, the other big plus was that it was centered less than 2 miles from where we were sitting, so it was very convenient - definitely within walking distance.

In related news, I really don't like the word temblor. Really seems like there should be another "r" in there somewhere.
