Earthquake here today
At 1:51pm EST
At 2:46pm EST
I felt my first earthquake. I live near DC and was born here almost 60 years ago. After it finished I called my wife and she felt it at her work as well. Someone mentioned the epicenter was near Mineral, VA where my mother lives and by the the lines were jammed up. Eventually she called me seeing I had tried to call her. I just felt my building shake but she had a lot of stuff fall off the walls and out of the cabinets. Fortunately her brother was there and is helping in the clean up.
When it first started to happen I thought someone with a heavy footstep was walking by, then I thought someone must be push a cart, then I stood up and we all were looking around watching the lights overhead shake. Then all the chatter began.
My first feeling was how cool. I understand what is going on. I leave on the blue ridge mountains so I know plates are pushing together there. I felt I was experiencing science in motion if you will. It wasn't until I checked that my wife, kids, grandkid and mother were OK that it hit I never thought of a imaginary god causing it to punish anyone. We know where they can happen and there ain't a god with a grudge out there trying to punish anyone.
Hurrah for science that gave me a real explanation for what goes on in life.
