I didn't feel it but my neighbor did and told me about it.

It was like my house went over a speed bump.

and we are only two months away from 2012. It has begun!!! 2012 Like from the impact of a nuclear bomb the window of my heart is melting away from what the windows of my eyes stair at each and everyday So go ahead and name your poison mines, I've already chosen I'm so tired of praying for peace that I can't pray anymore and trust me, I've prayed high and low I've prayed from shore, to shore Had there been an answer I would have found it but to no avail, the answer still confounds me So go ahead and light up the sky Rain on me There is no answer Make purple rain fall and then we all will be free Free as it is in your heaven but now it will be your hell It's strange how the mayan calendar predicted this all in the year 2012

The Diablo Regional Concert Band was rehearsing in Martinez. We felt the quake, but kept right on playing. For a second I thought someone was shaking my chair, but then I realized it was a quake. Even though it was a 3.8, it felt stronger to me than the 4.0 I had felt in Benicia earlier that day.

Didn't feel either of them up in Southampton. Very interesting, because a friend down on West I street posted it in Facebook and that's how I learned of it. However, my dog was very agitated outside around that time. More sediments and fill downtown. Southampton is on bedrock.
