A 5.9 earthquake was centered in someplace no one has every heard of in Virginia and even 200 miles away I felt it. And now, reports are coming in from as far away as Canada and Florida that they felt it too.
Gee, I've had a tornado this spring, an earthquake this summer, and I hope I don't get to add hurricane to the list before the week is out (Irene). Eighteen inches of rain in 3 days from Hurricane Agnes back in 1972 was mroe than bad enough!
At work in Harrisburg the building swayed, and if I'd heard a noise, I would have assumed something had hit the building. or was bouncing like a trampoline up on the roof. So I went outside to check and I saw light poles dancing around. That's when I knew for sure it was an earthquake.
