That was a nice little EARTHQUAKE in San Jose. Anyone else feel it?

3.9 magnitude. Quite a short but significant jolt.

Adds to an already weird day in the South Bay with thunder, lightning, and hail.

Preparing for frogs and locusts.

4. Hayward Fault?

I didn't feel anything. I'm near the northern end, and anything happening on the Hayward Fault puts me on edge.
