Shake it to the left, Shake to the right

So 4.2 Earthquake hit on East Bay this morning about 4am. (about 50ish miles away). I wish I could say I felt it but I was asleep (yeah for being able to sleep this week!). I don't mind all the 4.0 earthquakes - they shake a bit but at least its letting off pressure so we avoid bigger ones. Like letting soda bottle open slowly.

First one I ever felt in California was 7 years ago when I first moved here. I hate to say this but I was in bathroom on loo at the time and just thought a big truck had gone past the apartment. However my cat at the time had its claws practically embedded into the couch in a version of panic so realized something else was going on ... Only time I actually felt one and thought yep that's one was about 4 years ago when I was sitting on my bed with my feet on floor and felt the floor roll and move like a wave under me, very strange.

Hopefully a big one wont hit here but we have our water, tinned food, flashlights and duct tape ready. Haven't got a clue what to do with the duct tape but seems like it should be in your get ready kit ;-)
