It happened about 10:30 PST. I was in bed, watching tv, when there was a rolling wave, and then a few seconds of shaking. As I was sitting there, I said to myself, this is a 4.5 - and when I turned to the news, that's exactly what it had been. (Patting self on the back.)
Nothing was damaged. Only two or three pictures were askew this morning.
The most interesting thing was that, after it was over, I heard what sounded like a truck motor. I thought someone's truck had run into my house. But no, as I walked into my kitchen, it turned out to be my refrigerator making noises just like when your washing machine is off balance.
As I began to slide it away from the wall, it stopped the loud noise and started to operate normally. That's never happened before.
My dog didn't bark at the quake, but she barked at the refrigerator.
I filled out my little report on the USGS "Did You Feel It?" site.
Anyone else feel it?
