“I could almost hear it before it came in to the house. It rolled underneath from left to right, and then it was gone.”

Placerville resident Penelope Mayes was awake when the 4.7 magnitude quake hit near Graeagle, California around 11:30 PM Wednesday.

Shock waves from the quake could be felt in Reno and Carson City.

Even residents in Roseville, California reported activity from the earthquake.

“You know, I've repaired so much glass it didn't even faze me,” says glass shop owner Frank Rossbach.

Glassforms Custom Glass Blowing is sandwiched between heavy road construction and rail road tracks.

Rossbach says he’s use to vibrations.

In fact, he says he slept right through it and didn’t know about it until he watched the news Thursday morning.

Across the street the owners of JoAnne's Stained Glass & Gallery weren't so sure.

“At first it was a little sway,” says Randy Pohler.

“Then it gave another little rumble like it was going to pitch up, and all I could think about was the shop and all the glass here.”

Fortunately he arrived to find the shop completely in order.

So far there have been no reports of damage or injury connected to the quake, but it has sparked a lot of conversation.
