We just had a earthquake! Whole house shook!
The ceilings creeked and groaned, a light almost fell off a table. The kids were outside, and they said "someone was trapped in the barn and was pounding the walls the a hammer to get out".
It lasted about 45 seconds.
Looks like it was centered in Mineral , VA
Better check those brick piers out. Since you all are okay, how's the boiler - or was that what was trying to get out of the barn?
Glad to hear you and the family are fine.
Everyone standing around me felt it in up here in NJ. I was standing right next to 5 people that started gawking around like we just had a ghostly visitor. I didn't feel a thing - must still have my sea legs
My VA friends were about 35 miles away from the epicenter too. I just heard back from them and all's okay with them too. They now have a bunch of empty shelves that spilled their stuff onto the floor. They said it sure felt like it took a long time to finish. Things seem to slow down when there's a lot going on.
