Little Earthquakes

Yes, I am borrowing the title of a great album by Tori Amos. However, it kind of describes today. There was an earthquake west of Richmond, Virginia today it was 5.9 on the scale. I felt it at work in Frederick, Maryland. The monitors were shaking, then the building, and then it was like a wave moving under my feet.

It tied for the strongest East Coast earthquake. I had slept through the smaller earthquakes we have had before. I also slept through a minor one in California. I was finally awake to experience an earthquake. Thankfully, it was a little earthquake and not a devastating one like the one in Haiti.
