I think there was just an earthquake aftershock. Shorter, but perhaps more powerful? None of the earlier warning kind of things, just shaking though there was some vibration through my feet. Could the difference in part be that I am now wearing shoes?
My dad said that he felt the first one and timed it at 3 minutes. He lives in a brick house though. He recognized it immediately from one he experienced the first day he got to Japan in the 1950's.
Nothing on the media or USGS Looks like it was just my imagination?
Revised: 10:54 I was right! http://pasadena.wr.usgs.gov/shake/cus/ Reports that there was a 4.5 magnitude earthquake 18 miles SE of Olney Illinois. It was not my imagination (KEN!) even if there is no word on CNN, yet. Perhaps my blog is just a better news source on this stuff. hah! I run rings around you logically.
(My sense that it was smaller was also surprisingly correct.)
