This was definitely not my first earthquake since I was born and raised in California but this was the firs time that I have been located this close to the epicenter of a quake. I have marked on the map where we live.
A few things were knocked off the wall, things fell off shelves but no major damage. I was just a bit shook up, no pun intended. It was a jerking motion first and then we felt a rolling motion and it lasted for a good little while. We didn't lose power, I am actually shocked that we didn't, however my cell phone did not work for about two hours. My brother Todd called to check on me at about 10:20pm on my cell phone so I know it works now. We are all fine, Sensei, Mugsy and I.
