I Thought I Imagined It

But no, that slight quivering in the house, that made me stop my reading and look up, puzzled, was a tremblor of an earthquake, hundreds of miles away.

The red area is the epicenter, I'm down at the bottom of the map, in Charlotte.

Update: A lot of bloggers are snarking about it, so I will too. Tonight's MSM headlines: 5.9 EARTHQUAKE IN VIRGINIA, OBAMA BLAMES BUSH

It' funny how differently people respond, depending on location. We had one of about that magnitude a couple months back; folks looked up, said, "Huh - that was a pretty good one" and went back to work.

But all y'all down there aren't used to 'em, and I'm sure it was quite a surprise.

It's also the fault of the tsunami in Japan and the Arab Spring. Neither of which was what I was cussing as I bailed out of the house.
