so did anyone else feel the earthquake at 5:30 in the morning?? i woke up and kinda freaked out (by kinda, i mean i was half asleep and had no clue what was going on!) i thought it was just a C-130 flying REALLY low over my house, because they've been known to do that around here, but it was taking too long.

Lol. East Coasters... I'm actually surprised with the geography as it is that those around New York/Kentucky don't get more earthquakes.

I felt my computer table and chair shaking on Wed at some point... the monitor kept wobbling and I tried to stop it, thinking it was my fat dad rolling around in his bed below me but it didn't stop and I kind of freaked out.

The thought of earthquake hit my mind, but I passed it off seeing as it would have been a really tiny one.

The shaking only lasted a few seconds.

I felt it in ohio. The birds outside my open window apparently did and freaked out, that's what woke me up... the earthquake lulled me back to sleep.

Tim you may be laughing now but as soon as Cali floats off into no where we will be the ones laughing.

I didn't feel it here in Detroit but aparently it set off car alarms and shook the city pretty good.

But if California is gone... then they'll have to make stuff up for all of my favorite shows like Laguna beach and the OC :dodgy:

well, because this part of the continent is so old. the rare earthquake happens because the old fault where europe/africa connected w/ north america has been pretty much stationary for the past couple million years, but it still moves on occasions. i wonder what my geology teacher will have to say about it on monday!

California will never float away... :rolleyes: Whatever idiot that you heard that from needs to GDIAF.

You mean the bridge that got melted from the intense heat of that fire? In Cali? It was cool as **** to drive by.

And 5.2 magnitude aint ****.

geez a 5.2? I would definetly wake up to that, but seeing as I live in oregon, the worst thing I have to worry about is my state catching on fire. In fact, the area around my house has caught fire two years in a row. Had to be evacuated twice... not so fun.

Sorry we didn't build our houses on major fault lines... we'll plan more next time. :dodgy:

I didn't have my house on a MAJOR fault line... only a minor breakoff. ;) Not joking on that one, haha! There seriously is a minor fault line break-off running a couple blocks away from my house. It comes off the major line that leads to the Fremont/Sunol area Hayward Fault in the hills off yonder near my house. :D

We have hurricanes. If the ground or house shakes, you look out the window and if you don't see a person, car, trailer or house flying by, it's safe beans and you just go back to what you were doing before the little tremble - :cool:

I heard nothing of this, although i've never heard of an earth quake in New England (although I'm at school and not TECHNICALLY in New England (...upstate NY). Even if it did hit up here, i'm sure i wouldn't have felt it at 5:30 in the morning. I'm barely in bed by then.

I felt it, and it scared the **** out of me. It wouldn't have been so frightening if I had felt one before, and knew what it was. It shook, and I jumped out of bed. It felt like only my bed was shaking. So, naturally, I was like GHOSTS!!!! And then there was this ticking in my wall for the next 30 or so seconds, which was also damn weird until I realized if was an earthquake.


Now that I know what they feel like, it won't be such a scary experience. I'm glad I didn't watch the exorcist or something the night before. That would have been messed.

I miss living on directly on top of the Canadian Shield... there's something comforting of living one of the oldest exposed rock formations in the world.

You'd think so, but scientifically and statistically it just means you're overdue. :rolleyes:
