Yes it was a little weird. I was sitting at my desk at work which is in the basement. I didn't know if I was daydreaming, or blood sugar levels low or what but I felt my chair move around and swore I seen the computer monitor moving a little bit and then it stopped, was only for a couple seconds and then about three seconds later it happened again for a couple more seconds. After the second time I figured it wasn't my imagination and I yelled over to a co worker if it was what I thought it was and he said yes and I ran out of the basement like a little girl because I will be dammed if I am going to die in the basement at my work LOL.

Looks like it did not cause a lot of damage or injuries. We didn't feel it here at all. We're lucky on this coast. That was a big one for us at 5.7. They aren't so lucky on the west coast. I'll never forget the video and pictures from the San Francisco quake in 1989!!

We felt it here. Wasn't much of anything.

I am going to send a check to George's boss to pay for the video footage. I can't wait to see vid of him shrieking like my wife over a mouse and running like there's a 90% off sale going on in his favorite ladies dept.

Priceless :laughingteeth:

I didn't feel it but then again I was sitting on my 312 mowing so if I would have I would have blamed the tractor. But when I got off I had texts & my kids were asking what that was.
