4.4 Magnitude Earthquake

This morning a 4.4 magnitude earthquake hit our area. The epicenter was 15 miles west of Paso Robles. There was no damage.

It hit around 5:30 a.m. which means I was still in bed. I remember the bed moving, shaking back and forth, and I woke up enough to think, "Oh, an earthquake." Then I went back to sleep. No aftershocks.

Sigh.

Is it too much to ask, that when a non-aftershock-no-damage earthquake hits, that it happens when I am awake to enjoy the movement of the earth and all the objects around me? Is that too much?

There goes those tectonic plates being inconsiderate again. They don't even have the decency to have a fault by me, so I get no earthquakes. Just lame monsoons.

Why do they always have to happen when you are sleeping? How rude. Come on, Earth. Cooperate!

It woke me up too. I just stayed there in bed thinking...if this gets any worse I'll get up...then when it was over I didn't hear anyone in my house moving around and I thought...did that just happend?...did I have a seizure?...then I went back to sleep....these things are very dramatic for me
