If it helps any, you're the third person I've seen mention it. But I think it was pretty big and you are just far away, I'm hearing 5.8 outside DC.

It was a 5.9 centered in Mineral, Virginia. It was FREAKY here in Frederick, and DC apparently shut down for an hour or so. Even my folks in North Carolina felt it...

Smithsonian twittered to say all the museums would be closed for the remainder of the day. PANIC! CHAOS!

yes, all of New York City engaged in a flash-mob mental epidemic of mass hysteria.....

and then it passed.

Different pockets of people in my office made a mad dash for life down the stairs to the street, where they remain.... malingerin/err... waiting for the All Clear.
