Did you feel the earthquake, too?!

If you felt the earthquake (whose epicenter was identified near Richmond, Virginia) leave me a message saying where you were at the time!

This was my first-ever earthquake experience, and just think, it was the strongest in recent recorded history! I heard that the last "significant" earthquake in this area happened in 1885 and was 4-point-something on the Richter scale. And this one was a 5.8... yowzer!

I was in Ellicott City, Maryland, and felt it rumble through my whole body! At first I thought it was construction or someone working on the roof of the building.

When I got home, things seemed to be in good order: nothing broken or damaged. However, the earthquake obviously had its way with my house, too! Several things were knocked over, and some doors had "magically" opened. My poor little ceramic bride and groom did a belly flop off of the top shelf!
