    I would have bet serious money that my sister-in-law would have a job before we'd have an earthquake on the east coast. I guess I lost that bet too, while she's still getting sympathy $ from her sister (my wife) UGH ! ... Bc

    Re: OT: Holt shit! Did you feel that earthquake?

    I didn't feel it here in Colorado. However, we did have one of our own yesterday, but much further south (near New Mexico). I didn't feel that one either. The Colorado Rocky Mountains are keeping us safe. Either that or the medical marijuana dispensaries.

    4th floor in my downtown Balto buiding really shook. Hit the door jam like a school kid. That was nuts.

    Friends in skyscraper in Manhattan had building swaying for 10-15 secs. They must have been losing it.

    Didn't feel anything down here at the beach. Everybody must have went right to their cell phones because I had a hard time getting through to my mom and bro.

    Can you imagine if this had happened on the day those nutjobs had been predicting the Rapture a couple months back? MADNESS.

    My co-worker called her dad in Hanover, PA and a neighbor in Spring Grove, just across the MD-PA border and neither of them felt it.

    My wife was in a warehouse style building in Pasadena and she said the whole thing was swaying.

    I am in a 3 story solid stone building with thick walls near Reisterstown. The building definitely shook some but nothing visibly moved. Mostly the wood and slate roof rattled very loudly as it rapped hard against the top of the building.

    I'm working on TV Hill today, and we saw a news van come flying out of the entrance gates about 3 minutes after the shake. Although I have no idea where they think they needed to be.

    Sun is already mentioning the possibility of aftershocks.

    OT: earthquake discussion - no jokes, please!

    For those who want to joke about this scary event, I set up a pinned thread for earthquake jokes here:

    Sorry to have removed the jokes from here, but mixing jokes with near-death tales doesn't fit.

    I came upstairs and all the books on my book shelf were on the floor after being knocked off. My
    nephew just came over and said his house actually moved from side to side. No damage.

    TV 11 just said Congressman Mitchell's house on Lanvale street was damaged and showed pics
    of bricks falling into the street. It's a historic site.

    Ok, now they are showing some major damage to bldgs in Bmore.

    As a senior citizen, I know that in the worst of times (as Mr. Dickens wrote) humor is a relief to many. Please do not dismiss it as making fun of those who've suffered, just look at it as a normal human response to a dangerous situation. I assure you that nobody, in reality, finds it amusing... Bc

    Verizon shut down their cell service because everyone got on it at once and they couldn't
    handle the traffic.
