Here on the east coast, with an epicenter in Mineral, Va, we experienced a 5.9 earthquake! I am sure Californians will just smile knowingly, but it was FREAKY! I was at work, on the 9th floor. The building started to vibrate, building to quite a big rattle! You could really feel the sway! Earthquakes do happen here, about once every 20 years it seems, but this one was definitely a biggy (for east-coasters). We evacuated the building and stood around outside on a very lovely summer day. After about 20 minutes they let us back in, and promptly sent us home. They knew no more work would be accomplished this day :-) Of course every other company around did the same, so there was a huge traffic jam at 2:30 pm.
It scared poor Jimmy like a thunder storm would!
So, how about you? Did you feel the earthquake?
