"It's possible that the temblor was a foreshock that could be followed by stronger seismic events, said Catchings. "To be very honest, we can't tell, but we do look at that kind of thing, and it's not unheard of for something like this to be followed by something larger," he said."
uhm, good luck with that. is stewie's house quake-proof?

Yeah, we are trying the "bury your head in the sand like an ostrich" approach. It works well for George Bush, so how can it go wrong for us? I mean seriously, look at the great state that our country currently is in!!!!!1!!1! US and A!!!!11!!!
Stewie actually was a bit rattled for approximately 70 seconds after the quake. Being nocturnal, he was awake at 4:47AM and so we went and checked on him soon afterward. He was standing next to his wheel motionless, and then he just started sprinting around like crazy. A few seconds later, however, he was back to running on his wheel and hanging out in tubes (no JP, not teh internets -- these are different tubes). That little dude has been through some serious trama (i.e. a car crash that ejected him and destroyed his cage) and he always moves on unscathed. I think that is a good approach to life -- as long as there is a plentiful supply of sunflower seeds, the world is beautiful.
