We had a 2.6 here in Dallas a couple weeks ago... Small, but strange.

Welcome to our world. :)

Well, actually, the area where I live is in the middle of CA's huge Central Valley, and there aren't any large faults very close to us. The last rumble I felt here was in 1975, and I barely felt it. I was in the Bay Area for Loma Prieta in 89, but since I was driving (and not on a bridge, although I had just crossed one) I didn't feel anything at all.

It's obvious that the Gods are angry. We have to make a sacrifice to them.

Heard about it on the news, glad everyone's OK, they said we were supposed to have been able to feel it here but I was in the shop with earmuffs on playing with power tools all day so I wouldn't have heard or felt it anyway...

Edit - my tenant said he felt it. So there you go, Richmond VA to Ottawa ON.

Felt it pretty well in the Philly area. First experience with an earthquake. It was a pretty unsettling feeling even though it was only about 30 seconds.

Apparently it was a 5.8-5.9 magnitude quake that started in the Richmond, VA area. My sister lives pretty close to there and I talked to her - sound like the shaking was a little more intense there but there wasn't much/any actual damage done to buildings etc in the area.

I live just 10 miles from the center of the earthquake. No damage,and I don't think it shook up the JAO to bad in the basement. It was only 9 days old at that point, but mother earth has been shaking it a little each day since. I will be starting a straight mead tomorrow, it will be only my second mead wish me luck.

Glad to hear everyone's ok.

In the meantime, think of it as "natural lees stirring." ;D

Oh, yeah, and I suppose hurricane force winds are just nature's little aeration tool. :)

My real worry is how many of you had your meads diluted in the north east. Hope all of you are well and dry and that nothing more important than a carboy washed away.
