Yes! I felt it. It makes me remember the '89 quake . I was at Loma Mar with lots of 5th graders at outdoor ed. camp. Now that was a rocker. I wonder if we will have more shakers in the next few days, This one makes three.

I definitely felt it in my bedroom! Was getting up for the day and my bed started shaking. I find it funny though because the news reported on it like something major happened- it was a little tremor nothing like 1989.

What do you mean by "this makes three"? Have there been others in the area very recently?

Here's a good website for "Did you feel it?" type questions:

Information is reported very quickly after an earthquake (within 5-10 minutes).
