First Timer

It is 5:01 AM and I woke up about 25 minutes ago with my bed shaking. It was as if someone was standing there shaking it violently. It lasted about 10 seconds and I had NO idea what was going on. It was weird enough that I was immediately alert. I walked around to see if anything had fallen off the walls, but nothing had. I turned on the TV and waited until the 5 o'clock news started and, lo and behold, there was a 5.2 earthquake about 250 miles away near the state line. It is officially my first earthquake; kinda scary, but nothing serious.

[update: just felt a brief aftershock at 10:15 AM]
