I just saw a weather crawler about this on the tv — I want to record my thoughts before I go read about it. I TOTALLY FELT IT!! But I didn’t know that’s what it was. I was sitting cross-legged on the couch and for like twenty seconds I felt the building moving, I swear! I looked around and my floor lamp was shaking. I was thinking… what is going on? I didn’t hear any noise. It wasn’t my upstairs neighbors, there were no footsteps overhead, just this very dim rumbley feeling. Were my downstairs neighbors walking around? I couldn’t figure it out. After a little bit it stopped and I shrugged it off, thinking that yes, it probably was my downstairs neighbors stomping around. The thought did cross my mind, "damn, this building must be pretty flimsy if THAT makes the whole building shake." Okay, gonna go read and find a link now. :-)
Update: Here’s a link. BTW this is my first earthquake experience ever in my whole life. I just don’t want y’all to think I’m some kinda dumbass that I would never dream there was an earthquake even though mentally, the BUILDING WAS SHAKING and I should’ve processed that info, and gotten my ass under a doorframe!! But no, I just sat there goin’ Duh-uhhhhh– What the?? I dunno, I’m from Texas, we don’t have them thangs where I come from. Maybe next time I’ll do better, now that I know what it feels like.
Cool, they’re talking about it on TV now.
