To those of you who, like me, are in the Eastern USA: how are you?

We've been shaken, rattled, and rolled a bit here in a "vibrate your drinking glass across the table and onto the floor" sort of way. It wasn't my first earthquake, but it was my first one here. Virginia growled as if she thought it to be a particularly unwelcome FedEx delivery person. (She's still planted at the front door, keeping guard, as I type this.) Fortunately, I don't see any significant damage at first glance. I need to check on my friends, family, and colleagues to the north.

How about everyone else?

It looks like this is being classified a 5.9 quake (I've seen as high as 6.2 in various reports.)

Earthquake in Virginia felt in New York, Washington, and North Carolina

sittingduck1313 was oblivious, but Mum says they felt it at work, and contemplated evacuating the building, but no reported damage as of yet.

Glad to know everyone's okay. I hope no damage was found.
