I think we just had an earthquake.
UPDATE: My landlady felt it, too. Two waves. My chair was vibrating and my shelves shook.
UPDATE: Cell phone networks overloaded, can’t make calls. Oh, it was a 5.9 in Virginia that we felt here. Lots of buildings being evacuated (our buildings aren’t made for earthquakes), lots of breathless coverage on the local teevee.
Only 0.6 miles deep, according to earthquake.gov. As I’ve mentioned before, our earthquake faults are on granite and shocks carry farther. If we ever get a big one here, it will do serious damage.
