Megan and I were woken up with a start at 2:41 this morning by an earthquake! It lasted just a few seconds and we fell right back to sleep. It didn’t even wake Abigail. The USGS says it was 4.7 centered in Berkeley!
In context, things are pretty ok here. Just today my friend Nick in the northeast sent me pix of a scene right outside his window, a big chemical spill, nearly 3 feet of dihydrogen monoxide solid precipitate blanketing his neighborhood! Thankfully they are all safe for now!
