Oh yeah, we felt it...and heard it. BOOM! Sounded like something exploded. I understand there were reports as far away as Sanford about it.

It gave our house a pretty good shake, and since everyone else in the neighborhood seems to turn the lights out by 9:00 I figured I might be the only one around who noticed it. I was relieved when my wife woke me up this morning to tell me that WMUR was reporting an earthquake. At least now she would believe me........

For us it wasn't so much the vibration as the noise. Sounded like a lightning strike right outside the window. Very loud...

And as it happens, just felt another tremor a minute ago. Just a nudge, and very little noise this time.

Many years ago, like 1982 or so, I traveled to California for the first time. Right before then there was a minor earthquake in NH that had made the news.

Hotel clerk in Los Angeles: "You're from NH. Isn't that where they have all the earthquakes?"

In the last seven days, the San Francisco Bay Area has had five quakes with three over a 2.0. We have about one of those every day.

Rare in Wolfeboro, common in San Fran.

Loma Prieta, 1989, was an experience I will never forget. You could not stand in a room during that thing. I saw an office worker, on a chair with wheels, get hurled across a 20' room and slammed into a wall.

Nothing to brag about, in my book. My B-in-law, your neighbor of sorts, paid a lot of $$$ to "quake proof" his home, and he could still be part of a major fire. They visit us, we don't visit them.

"Oh, honey," purred the wife, turning to her husband in bed "I felt the earth move."

"That wasn't me, sweetie, it was Mother Nature."
