No dishes fell, no car alarms went off ... just another California shaker.

They mapped it off of Felter Rd. close to Sierra Rd. I'm sure you know where I'm talking about. Calaveras reservoir dam broke!

It's funny, I have not been in a quake for quite a long time, but once I realized what was up, I picked up my kids and started out the door. It stopped before I got out.

Same here. I felt it out here in Fairfield. I usually don't feel quakes. Last one I felt was Loma Prieta. This one rolled a bit.

Felt it out here (Half Moon Bay), but as said above, it ended before I got outside. Dishes were shaking...

Meh, didn't feel a thing here, as usual. Then again, it was just a 5.6, so not too surprising.

Yeah, me either. I just hope the Big One doesn't hit Saturday night. I'll be Memorial Stadium for the Cal-WSU game.

Same here, in San Francisco. The house started to shake and it stop by the time we reached the door.
Definitely will be alert tonight

Heh, I was at a stoplight in Menlo Park, driving to my home in Union City.

My car shook like the dickens!

Needless to say I was really thrilled at the prospect of driving over the Dumbarton Bridge about 10 minutes later.

But I'm happy to report the bridge was still intact and my home is still standing.

my house did some swaying and shaking... wife was kind of having flash backs of the 89 quake. Strange thing is this is the 3rd quake for the bay area today . I think concord had a 2.9 around 12:50pm today and Berk had a 2.2.

Sorry everyone... was hitting the bass drums a bit hard tonight at practice :-) This was easily the biggest quake I have felt since the 89 shaker. At first I thought someone dropped an amp or speaker cabinet down the flight of stairs near my room but when the stands started swaying and it really started to shake hard, it was run for the door time. My studio is down by Brokaw and the airport so it was fairly close to the epicenter. This quake went on a little too long for comfort, I'm surprised it was not a 6+.
