Earthquake!

Just before two o'clock today I was sitting in my office in the library.  All of a sudden I heard this crunching sound above me in the ceiling and then I realized that a rolling motion was going through the office!  I raced to the outer hallway door of the library waiting for it to stop!  It was a little scary.  Las summer I felt one a little stronger in Canada.  I even have a shirt that says I survived the 4.0 Ottawa quake.  This one wasy centered farther away in northern Virgina and was supposedly a 5.9.  Wow!

Are you that close to me?

Kind of unnerving eh? I have been in a couple on the west coast and the movement is quite a surprise.

I heard about it yesterday, I have friends in Philly and they felt it too. I'm glad nobody got hurt!
It must be scary all right!

I'll take an earthquake over a tornado any day.
