Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Whoa. Earthquake.

Just a little one, with kind of a side-to-side, circular motion. Neat. Lasted maybe 5 seconds. If I were walking in the office during that time, I would have missed it. Our controller said, "Oh, it was? I thought it was just me."

Epicenter was 136mi south of San Jose, and 4mi underground. Details are still updating at the moment, and haven't been reviewed by a seismologist yet. But you can see that there have been several minor tremors in the past week or so (Gilroy is an hour south of me).

Oh well, back to work.

Felt it in Mountain View. It was definitely a roller which was kind of neat. My coworker in near Santana Row was on the 10th floor of his building and he felt the building swing side to side.
