    Default Any Marylander....

    woke to the earthquake that hit around 5am this morning? Woke me up lol house shook for a couple seconds. Was recorded as a 3.6 on the scale, supposedly the hardest recorded quake to hit the east coast. Happened just outside DC but we felt it in the Baltimore area.

    edit: topic should say Marylanders....

    It was neat. I was in the shower when the earthquake hit.

    I'm a child of the 70's and 80's...so my immediate first reaction was "THEY DROPPED THE BIG ONE!"

    I was still slightly asleep, and I've watched too many sci-fi movies. I was thinking about finishing getting ready for work, walking outside, and finding a post-apocalyptic wasteland. I had planned out my first few moves (where to get guns and non-perishable foods, etc) before I got out of the shower and saw on the news that it was a minor earthquake. Darn.

    It's possible my imagination is a little too active.

    For us on the right coast, that was a pretty impressive shake. I heard some people in Rockville actually had things fall off of counters and shelves. It was probably stuff that was too near the edge, anyway. Why don't people prepare better?!

    Yup. I felt it. I was standing by my computer brushing my teeth when it happened. Initially, I thought it was thunder ... then I thought it was a truck. Then I realized, "Oh! Earthquake!" I've been in a minor one in upstate NY before, so I was familiar with how it would feel from that first experience.

    Hmm, I live in northern Virginia and early this morning my dog started barking for no apparent reason and woke me up. I wonder if that is what she heard. Then she climbed into bed and I fell back to sleep because it was way too early for a slacker like me to get up.

    Woke my brother and his wife. I am from Baltimore, i remember the small earthquake in the 80s where it cracked our drywall. My father taught me how to fix drywall when i was 8.

    Glad to hear that most of you all were ok. And i miss my steamed crabs and beer ... stuck here in Louisiana.

    I fixed it for you .

    Earthquakes are a bit of a trip the first time you experience them. At least it was a very minor quake, so the damage should be minor and shouldn't extend much beyond the psychological realm.

    We have two types of shrimp out here, Oiled and non oiled ... The Oiled are ready to fry ... so more expensive.

    Heh. someone is really enjoying these earthquakes! Well I cant blame you mate, thats what I always think of when I hear that some part of the world have been hit by natural disaster. First I imagine what would happen if same thing happened in London, then I think where to get food to survive and some sort of weapons... Just in case...

    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Yep I need a final low down. Are the crab cakes ok? I know I already asked but need to be sure. Also are the cooks who make the cakes ok?
