    I felt the earth move under my feet...

    Well, actually I didn't because I was on the ground floor getting my Starbucks fix, but apparently our building was swaying back and forth. EARTHQUAKE! Anyone feel it?

    I hope everyone is okay.

    We felt it here. We all stopped to look at each other while the room shook. We figured that it couldn't be a quake, but it was.

    I was swaying and had not even been drinking yet. If it happened tonight I might not have noticed since my swaying might counter the swaying earth. Then I would think I was sober and have more.

    Here in Central Ohio the Grado continued to track perfectly during the quake.

    Aren't you in SW Ontario? I didn't feel anything here in London.

    I have felt EQs in Toronto in the past, though.

    I've been in four earthquakes that I know about. I felt only one: I was sitting at my desk on the third floor at the corner of Bloor & Church streets in Toronto, circa 1985. I felt a noticable vibration through the floor and wondered what the heck it was; I only discovered a couple of hours later that it was an EQ.

    I was completely oblivious to another earthquake in Toronto in the late '90s, the one the other day, and one in -- of all places -- San Francisco in the late 80's.

    The one the other day was my third but I've only felt one...the one in Quebec in June 2010. That's enough for me thank you very much. I'll be happy if I never feel another one.

    I was thinking about you and PoppaChubby last night during all the Tornado warnings. I'm glad that none of the warnings came to fruition.

    Welp...

    That was my second quake, both in upstate New York. I noticed this one easily as I work on the 8th of 20 floors in an office building. I knew something was up when my ass started moving without permission. I laughed out loud and was just reelin' wit' da feelin' till the big jolt midway through started rattling the shades, then I got serious. It was a funny thing though watching the different reactions.. Women and post 911ers began running for the door and I do mean running!!! I laughed at that as there seemed to be no noticible falling pieces off of any of the buildings. However they weren't the only ones running, 3 minutes after the quake the State of New York ordered a general evacuation of the entire complex.

    So.. within minutes there we all were standing in the afternoon sun, smoking and joking. Some like me realized that we were only marginally safer where we were surround by 4 twenty story buildings and one 40 story structure. If they'd fell we'd a still been just as daid as if we'd stayed at our desks. Still no harm, no foul and we all have stories to tell.
