Default DC Earthquake

Woke up this morning, saw the the news, and there was an earthquake? Said the epicenter was in Germantown, MD and people in VA, WV, PA, DC, MD could feel it. Don't worry people, I'm ok it was only a 3.6. I slept through the earthquake and felt nothing. Even so, please donate to the hilife relief funds just to be safe.

I'm so MAD. I've NEVER been in an earthquake before and then the first time I'm in one and I sleep right through it.

Had a lacrosse game last night and slept until 7 AM......the earthquake could have been a block away, I'd still have slept through it.

Maybe it's like the eye of a hurricane.

Seriously, since when have we been getting earthquakes on the east coast. The building here are not designed to handle that. What happens when the big one finally hits. You know, 5.0.

I hear if you try to keep your balance during an earthquake it really strengthens your core.

3.6 is a really weak earthquake.

I live in Virginia about 15 miles from the epicenter. It woke my whole family up. My first confused, bleary-eyed thought was "how the hell is a train going by our house?"

I'm a seriously light sleeper, and I didn't know anything about this until this thread.

There is a fault line that runs through Virginia. There was one there in 2002ish in Eastern Virginia.

I slept right through it. Didn't find out till a morning staff meeting that a rumble had even occurred. Of course, I was a pretty blind drunk last night, that could have contributed.

I remember that, it was centered around Richmond. Despite being FAR north of there, I actually felt that one.

I don't think Californian's would even consider this an earthquake. More like a land fart.

I don't remember hearing about that. I was thinking this was VA first one ever.
