Felt it here in Pa. The house was moving a bit. Me and Jedi were just taking about it!

Wild stuff.

Here is Pittsburgh I thought I was about to pass out, then realized, it was just the earth moving

I'm in Richmond and felt it good. She was a slow rocker- 30 seconds or so. Nothing like a Bay Area shake, but rowdy for the East Coast!

We are about 120 miles from Mineral, VA. My computer monitor was shaking pretty good - I thought one of my office mates was messing with me. My dad in DC said it felt like a tank battalion going past his house.

At new years a few years ago, at the Start of Viola Lee Blues, Phil dropped a bomb and some out-of-towners/first-timers thought it was an earthquake. I kindly told them, "even if it was, I wouldn't worry until you see the locals running."

Glad you fellas could experience the CA "status quo." :cool: I think they are terrifyingly exciting!

Peace,

Jommy

I was in Philly and I missed it didnt fell much at all. My Missus was totaly freaked out, stuff falling and the building shaking. I actually had a old Jerry G ceramic painted 'artifact' fall off a shelf and break and an Elvis ornament broke from the same shelf. Kind of messed with my GD 'stuff' display shelf.

I'm in Richmond too. As Maybeck said, nothin crazy at all, but a couple folks at work freaked. Having lived a few years in San Francisco, it really just made me miss it a little bit. Weird? Maybe? I dunno..
