PerceptionsNot much as a story here, just a thought. It's amazing how people get used to their particular environment. Last night we had a 5.2 at 4'30 am aprox. I didn't felt a thing, lol.
It takes more than 6 degrees to actually wake me up. This is not common for everybody, but checking my FB account, it seems lots of friends didn't woke up either.
When it's strong enough to wake me up, I usually stay in bed. My dogs don't even bark, my kids say nothing and rarely talk about it later.
Of course the 7.5 I experienced at 9 yo, and the 8.8 a couple of years ago did get my attention!! But I seem to recognize by now the way it gets when a big one is developing. The noise is a good indicator and so is the time elapsed.
