If you think 5's are bad, you should feel what a 6.5 and 7 feels like. Living here in California, you experience a great deal of shaking. Funny, you never get used to them. They always sneak up on you when your least expecting them. I hate when they come at night. There not too bad when you are awake. We haven't had a good one in awhile. Here in California, we are due.:mad:
