After Yesterday I feel this is appropiate.... :lol:
I feel The Earth Move~~~

I felt it at about 1:50 P.M. yesterday, something "Shook My home" for about 10 seconds
about 20 minutes later i found out what it was....and that it originated in Virginia

So did any of you "Feel" It??What were you doin at the time??, Was it a "Hard Shake"
Or Was it a "Gentle Shake"???
I have a friend that work's on the 10th floor of her building..Her whole Building swayed
Enjoy Your Day!

Very little if any here in SW Ohio. I was out mowing grass at the time, so I didn't feel anything.

LOL, something just dawned on me.

I have a very good friend who moved from San Francisco to Lexington, KY. His main reason was to be near his daughter but one of his secondary reasons was that he doesn't like the little tremors we regularly get in SF.

Suffice it to say I just sent him a very snarky e-mail. :whistle:

Well, in all honesty, I was in the bathroom and I suddenly felt the ... porcelain ... moving under me! I've been in earthquakes in California and Alaska, and that was my first thought. Then I reconsidered -- I threw my back out (bad!) last week and I am still on muscle relaxants, and I thought it might have been me. But then I noticed the towels, swaying on the towel bars.

We get a few of them in NJ, usually very mild glacial rebound quakes. This was pretty big by our standards.

And now we're just waiting for the big storm due here for the weekend. :wink:
