    Lol, it happened just about 2-3 hours ago >.< I was all sleeping and my bed starts shaking...

    And honestly, what went through my mind at that time was "OH CRAP. IT'S THE BIG ONE!" (you know, the huge one that's supposed to happen in Cali soon)

    But thankfully, it was only a 4.4. Phew!

    Anyone else feel it?

    Yep, scared me pretty good. But I've been feeling like shit since yesterday and I was really sleepy, so I just ignored it and went back to sleep.

    I'm actually in Cali right now for Spring Break, I must have slept through it.

    But this was my first earthquake (whether I was aware of it or not), wahoo! I'm not officially a part time californian (is that how you say it?).

    Wow...

    Well, at least you guys are okay. I live in Georgia, and I can't imagine how you guys live like that. I'd be living in fear year round.

    It isn't living if you are always in fear.

    Each state has something different to worry about. Tornados, floods, huricanes, blizzards, avalanches, earthquakes, etc.

    You get used to it.

    Cali is short for California. It is a state in the USA with an economy over five times greater than your entire country.

    Except for Kentucky. Kentucky doesn't get ANYTHING. No tornadoes, hurricanes, never any floods. The Weather Channel always ignores Kentucky.
