Earthquake? What Earthquake?

So there was an earthquake in Virginia that affected New York. Supposedly. While I do know people who felt it, I personally didn’t. Call me Doubting Thomas, but I don’t believe it happened unless I see/feel it.

BUT! I do remember what I was doing at that time. I… *drumroll* was watching Heartstrings. Sad, no? How a drama can so envelope my attention that I didn’t even notice my chair shaking. If it was shaking. I do remember it shaking, but I thought it was a coworker trying to get my attention. We both shake each other’s chairs like mad, so we swore that if another earthquake were to happen, we’d turn to each other and go, “What?!”

  1. 5.8 ain’t that shaking … and it was for a short amount of time . I think it was felt on sky-scrappers better. However if the buildings weren’t build quake proof they might knock down, but usually doesn’t happen at this magnitude. To calm down a lil ask around about the building’s architecture and quake proof.

    In my country a 6.x happens once at 3-4 years and that’s scary even I live at first floor.On the 4th floor the crystals are shaking badly (every time the 4th floor ahjummas are scared to death).At work I must leave the building after the kids.The building was built before a 7.2 earthquake 50 years ago.

    This is in Eastern Europe but in Middle Asia when small surface quakes happened – then it was bad – I think about Egipt, Turkey and maybe Iran (it was 10 – 5 years ago when ppl died and I was wtf this is a small one )

  2. I was one of the only people on my floor 26 who didn’t have anything to say about the experience. I was on the 3rd floor when it happened and I missed all the excitement. I did have to deal with my cellphone not working for a little while though.

  3. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why
    but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
