 Earthquake in Maine
Did anyone on here in the New England area feel that 4.0 earthquake that happened in Maine last night? I was reading a bedtime story to my daughter when the our building started to shake. The lamp next to us started to sway too. It felt like a huge truck was rumbling by right outside of the building or something--of course the fact that we're on the tenth floor eliminated that explanation. It wasn't anything big, but was certainly a bit disconcerting. It seems like every few years there's some minor earthquake or tremor in New England. Since we don't usually expect them a big deal is made out of them. I've always felt like I was missing out because I've never felt one before. Now I kind of wish I hadn't felt this one! Two months ago we would have been living on the first floor of our house. It's a bit scarier to think of what could happen now that we're living on the tenth floor of a building in Brookline...


Oh well, we'll all be eaten by Zigra sooner or later.

I didn't feel a thing. I got home around 6:45 and was watching MASH (the episode when Maj Houlihan has prickly heat on her butt) when it happened but even the cat wasn't bothered. My parents live the next town over and it shook their entire house. At first they though something happened to the oil burner due to the noise and shake, but then realized it was an earthquake.

Being so far from Maine, I only knew about it when stations put a scrolling marquee at the bottom of the screen. I think we're lucky up here in New England. Outside of big snowstorms and the odd weak hurricane, we have the safest weather in the country. I would go out of my mind with worry if I lived in "Tornado Ally" yet people do it. Same goes for the Southest where the killer hurricanes routinely hit.

I got a call from my mother about an hour north of us in NH to see if I'd felt the tremors, but was blissfully unaware of anything when it happened. Others in our town felt it, so I chalk it up to the fact that I was moving around the kitchen putting away groceries at the time.
