YES! A BIG BUMP with a few but light rattles...
I did- I was sitting on the porch and felt a very strong jolt. Since the anniversary of '89 is coming up and with all the recent talk of the Hayward fault being due for a big one, it got me worked up!
I noticed something very similar. At first I thought there were elephants in the attic! but then I realized, oh yeah, this is california.
Regardless, it does feel creepy though!!
hey we felt it too. I guess being a California native I didn't think much of it but my kids were like 'hey what was that!!' But it was pretty small here, where did it originate?

Lol I'm a native of the Bay Area as well and don't ever think ground shaking is normal. No matter what, it's not a daily occurrence that we feel quakes. And I do remember '89 very clearly.
This was a strong little jolt, for a 3.7! Nice wake-up call, Mother Nature!
I felt it, it was a strong shake, now that I found out it was a 3.7 magnitude, I am surprised because it felt pretty strong
I was sitting on the couch with a wall behind me. It felt like somebody pushed the couch from behind a couple of times.
One good jolt and some lighter shaking. Which fault was it?
I knew it wasn't the wind. Rain and an earthquake ... two bits. Sorry ... silly joke.
Quite a jolt, then about 8 seconds of shakes or tremors followed. Ho, hum, earthquake, keep watching show.
