Earthquake in Virginia. 5.8 according to USGS. I find myself wanting to yell “We’re not in California, you know!” at the earth’s crust. Does a 5.8 cause much damage? I have no feel for these things. I’ll have to google that. Speaking of feeling things, the earthquake felt just like being on a ship at sea. Except I was sitting behind a desk staring at the shocked look on my boss’s face, wondering if I should go stand in the doorway. I didn’t. My survival instinct may need some help. Twitter is abuzz. (You thought I was going to say it was all atwitter, didn’t you?) Kinda fun to watch. At least my internet connection survived. No cell phones, though.
Update: 5.9, not 5.8
Re-Update: Back to 5.8. I wonder how that works.
