We felt it over here in Fremont. I thought it was a train passing by at first. They usually jiggle the house quite a bit! Then, realized all was
quiet outside. Interestingly, there was a microquake (2.0) in the wee hours this morning, around Berkeley. Sure hope we're not gearing up for that
proverbial "Big One!"
I've been wondering if something was going to happen weather wise or quake wise. The birds been acting weird here for the past 5 months. Our
bedroom door the other day got jammed more so I had to take the coat rack off.
I had just gotten used to the heat and was drifting off to sleep, and then I woke up to my shower door rattling like crazy. It's been a long time

Yes, I know there was that 5.6 Alum Rock quake on the Calaveras fault. There's been several small aftershocks around the same area from that one
still popping. I've been also noticing several micros creeping towards the Concord, Danville, and Moraga areas. Then up toward Napa and Fairfield.
Not sure what fault is in the Alamo area.
Anyone felt this one centered in Piedmont? We were seeing an increase in roadkill up that way for the past few weeks. Wonder if it was a precursor?
The pigeons and the seagulls were flying in unison this morning. Hmm. This one had a rocking chair feeling too it.
