I live in a tall house by the beach. My bedroom is on the third floor. The master bedroom contains two main windows facing outward towards the ocean, and four internal windows looking out on to the living room and dining room below. They are the first to rattle when an earthquake occurs. I did not feel the earthquake this morning. Nor did I hear it. Probably--as one of my girlfriends has been telling me--because I was too drunk from the night before to notice.
