Ah, there it is.
It was a 4.3 outside Ridgemark, CA. USGS also has a map indicating where people felt it. (Redwood City is a light blue blob halfway between San Jose and San Francisco.)

According to this map we shouldn't have been able to feel it at all.

Anybody else just feel an earthquake?

Bizarre typo
ABCNews NewsFlash currently includes the following headline... Mr. Blackwell Releases Worsted Dressed List. Presumably they mean worst dressed, not dressed in worsted (which is a fabric made from wool yarn).

Perhaps I'm wrong. I'll be interested to see if they publish a denim dressed list and a chiffon dressed list.

Next week on Alias...?
ABCNews runs randomized ads alongside their articles. When I opened the article Love Triangle Leads to Ax Attack, I got the following ad.

Doesn't look good for Michael Vaughn. (Amusingly, the poor guy who was attacked by his wife's boyfriend was also named Vaughn.)
