Scene: Darkened bedroom, 4:35 a.m.
Beloved: Do you feel that? It’s an earthquake!
Me: Mmmf … earthquake?
Beloved: Earthquake! Didn’t it wake you up?
Me: No, you just did. But that’s cool, too.
Yes, by the time that I became pretty awake, all that was left was the weak oscillations left in the bed and sliding doors rattling in their tracks.
There was a magnitude 4.1 earthquake (blue box) early this morning NE of us (green star) near Mt Palomar. Clearly the initial jolt was enough to wake one of us. Eutaw and I would have otherwise missed all the excitement.
