So that Wasn't the Upstairs Neighbor Dropping Crates

Just after 10 AM today, the building creaked just a little bit and I felt a short, sharp jolt. I though someone had slammed a door hard upstairs, but then I thought it might be an earthquake and braced for further action. None was needed, and no harm was done. I checked the local USGS earthquake map and indeed, there was a magnitude 3.1 earthquake centered a few miles from where I live. There was apparently a small aftershock in the same place five minutes later, but too small to feel here.

3.1 isn't much of an earthquake -- I've been relatively close to four 6-plus quakes in my life -- so it's a sign of how close it was to here that I felt it at all.
