You hear the rumble of distant thunder

A 4.2 isn't that big as earthquakes go, but I sure felt last night's, and it seemed to go on for quite a while. Nothing fell over in my place, but numerous things in the apartment upstairs must have been precariously balanced because there was a great clatter, followed by a lengthy stretch of that slightly otherworldly sound you hear when a metal disk or ring spins down, making it sound as though a car had wrecked up there.

You used the phrase "great clatter" and that it but one of the many reasons I read your blog so often!

"It" should be "is" and I would have caught that if I had utilized the preview function. Oh well.
