We're shakin'

About ten minutes ago, the house took a pretty good jolt. From the USGS website:
Magnitude 2.4
Date-Time Monday, November 28, 2005 at 05:37:32 (UTC)
= Coordinated Universal Time
Sunday, November 27, 2005 at 9:37:32 PM
= local time at epicenter
Location 37.840°N, 122.22°W
Depth 5.6 km (3.5 miles)
Distances 2 km (1 miles) NNE (15°) from Piedmont, CA
5 km (3 miles) E (85°) from Emeryville, CA
5 km (3 miles) N (3°) from Oakland, CA
18 km (12 miles) ENE (67°) from San Francisco City Hall, CA
These coordinates put this little temblor on the Hayward fault about a mile from our house. These days we're thinking that these small releases are keeping the really big shifts from occurring. Why would anyone live in a place like this?
