Did You Feel It? You can report what you felt--or didn't feel, as the case may be--at the following page: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/nc72182046#dyfi And keep in mind that it's just as important to report that you didn't notice the quake...

No wonder.... I had dreams about being on a boat that night. I woke up Monday morning feeling like I had just gotten off a boat, and hadn't gathered my land legs yet!!! Funny how dreams can tell you something...

I live in beautiful Sonoma County about 30 miles from the Coast. We didn't feel anything. Thank God. Come on up n visit us n then over the hill to Calistoga for a massage n spa treatment. This wine country lifestyle is terrific. Our motto: "Rest. Relax. Enjoy!" God has truly blessed this area with His goodness.... N again, we didn't feel any EQ. Aren't we lucky? :-) From "The Wine Country Diva"
