Ah!! It was 4 in the morning.. Me, Viral and Jay were trying to pass time (Jay was studying which I got to know much later..). I was suddenly shaken up with something unusual!
The window panes rocked.. the walls were thumping.. the complete house was shaking! "O Shit!", Viral exclaimed. Within moments, ever before I could catch my breath and understand what was happening, that thing stopped. I didn't move for few seconds till realized that I'd just experienced my FIRST EARTHQUAKE in California!!
Googling was done and found out that this one was a 4.4Ritcher scale. The epicenter was 10miles from our place. 'Hmm, Not Bad!'.
