5.2

First time anything's fallen off a shelf in a while, likely because of the duration.

I usually don't feel earthquakes but I sure felt the one at 8:30 last night. We were rockin' and rollin' in Jaramillo Arriba. Even the doggies who usually sleep through everything picked up their little ears.

From Brisas:  Strong prolonged shuttering with a lot of noise ( maybe my blinds but scarey non the less).    Flossy was so full of ribs from the Amigos doggie calendar fest she slept through it.

I've seen reports of 4.8 to 5.8. I wonder when we can expect the final verdict.

Paintings on my walls were hanging crooked this morning.

I haven't seen any reports and doubt there is very much. Despite how long that sucker lasted, it was only a 4.7 on the Richter scale according to the USGS. It certainly alarmed me and I ran for the door, but it never really threatened to topple anything at my place

[Sarcastic] Moderator comment: So what was the real magnitude of this quake -- 4.7 or 5.2? I guess you get to pick whichever number best suits your agenda.
