"micro" earthquake

20:55: Bernhard retires to the "Stille Oertchen" with a newspaper.

20:56: Bernhard gets a good kick in the behind and the water tank behind him squeaks ominously.

20:58: No-one else in the house felt it (they sat on cushioned couches or the stairs). Bernhard looks at event nc51172604. Neat. Even links to Google Maps. Zoom in! The epicenter was about 4 miles from my house.

That's what a magnitude 2.9 feels like...
