Shake, Rattle, and Roll

This morning Anna Claire and Mallory felt their first earthquake! The quake measured 3.6 and was the loudest and strongest I've felt in several years, which isn't saying much. We haven't had a major earthquake here since 1886.

Maybe it's all the baby gear we have in the living room now which is where all four of us were this morning, but we could hear and see toys rattling, the blinds shaking against the windows, and Christmas tree ornaments quivering on the branches. The boom and subsequent rumbling lasted only about five seconds in my estimation and while the whole house shook, the quake still wasn't strong enough to activate the jumperoo!
