By now you’ve probably heard that the Dee Cee area got struck by a 3.6 magnitude earthquake this morning?

The thing woke me up at around 5:00 a.m.  The windows were all rattling and there was a kind of ambient rumbling all around.  In fact, my first reaction was to think it was an earthquake.  But then I got thinking that it couldn’t be, and that it must have been a low-flying military jet on afterburners, or some other such explanation.   Having thus pigeon-holed the phenomenon, I rolled over and went back to sleep, congratulating myself on not having awoken Mrs. R with foolish babblings. 

I’m told that there was a small aftershock a bit later, but I evidently slept right through it.

So that was an earthquake, that was.  My very first one.  Fortunately, it was small enough to be a mere curiosity, rayther than any kind of ordeal.
