It's not your imagination, the earth is still shaking between the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valley after Thursday's 4.2 quake.

Last night, there were a cluster of temblors in the same area:

On Friday evening, earthquakes ranging in magnitude from 2.3 to 2.5 hit at 6:06, 6:13 and 10:21. the aftershocks were all in the same general area as the Thursday quake, between San Fernando and Newhall, west of the junction of the Golden State (5) and Antelope Valley (14) freeways.

We want the east coast to continue thinking we're really hardcore about quakes and don't give anything under 6.0 a second thought, but if you were close to the epicenter, let us know if you felt it. You can be really blase about it.
