OK, it wasn't a doozy or anything, but this was my first California earthquake, or that I felt, anyway.  There have been a cluster of them lately.

This one was weak, only 3.2 (now upgraded to 3.3. I hear) on the Richter scale, but as the epicenter was only about 3 km from me, the shaking was strong enough to rattle stuff and wake me from sleep:

Epicenter was at N34.0682 W118.3915, which seems to be someone's backyard garage on Oakhurst Dr., just north of Wilshire.  The time was 3:26 a.m. pacific time.

Fun!  I enjoy non-deadly non-damaging seismic events.
