Jitters

We've had three smallish earthquakes today -- two late this morning and one just 20 minutes ago -- and for every one, we've both been in the house, both heard them before we felt them, and both got juuuuuust a bit jumpy. They were centered in or around the Berkeley hills in different places, but close. They were all 2.8, 3.something, like that. If something that "small" is centered close to you, you feel it, especially on the second story of a frame house. Now of course I'm jumping at every low-pitched sound. Unfortunately this old house creaks and squeaks a lot anyway.

And it's raining, supposed to rain all night and tomorrow morning. So if you hear we've been found ten feet deep in the mud with the house on top of us, don't say I didn't warn you.
