There was a small 3.0 earthquake last night around 9.30pm Pacific Daylight time. 3.0s aren’t terribly big, but we (me and mine) happened to be about only five miles from the epicenter. It was a quick and exciting jolt. And as it happens, I was laying on the floor at the time so I got the full force of it (no couch or bed absorbing any of the energy). Here’s the skinny (courtsey of USGS):
