    We Just Had an Earthquake!

    Very small, but what a bizarre feeling!

    The sheep in the field didn't even bother to stop eating!

    That's crazy, we just had one too. Probably the same fault line or whatever.

    I think I'm about 200 miles from you.

    CNN is covering it. It was a 5.8 in Virginia. It was felt in DC, New York, N.C. and Ohio!

    Rock and Roll, bitch!!
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Oh god, we're seriously evacuating the building. What a bunch of panickers.

    LOL! Well, I certainly wouldn't be staying in a tall building! Not that my house is really much better just because it's small. LOL!

    I have a WHOLE new appreciation for what you've been through! Even though this was nothing.

    I still can't get my heart rate down.

    The dog is under the bed and won't come out. LOL!

    I'm on the 32nd floor and we're not evacuating. Still feeling it a tiny bit.

    My dad in NJ said his desk was moving around the floor a bit.

    I seriously thought it was just construction on the floor below or above.

    People are saying it's felt in Toronto

    Beyond the scare, it's such a strange physical feeling. I can't imagine dealing with so many, luvs

    Gosh, it was shallow. No wonder there was a bit of shaking.

    Wow! Way shallow. That's exactly why it was so widely felt.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Lol. We sat kinda dumbfounded in the lab for a moment, then evacuated the building for a little bit. First one that I've ever been awake for.

    Weird.
    I disapprove of this message

    So we're standing out in the quad, waiting for someone to shut the alarm off. This has been an odd diversion in the middle of a not-so-productive day.
