We live in Hoopers Creek in Fletcher and I hit the hubbys arm and said what in the heck was that. He said it was the wind, and I said no, we dont have any. Told him then it was a tremor. I hadn't been thru one since the 60s when I lived in Kenilworth in Asheville. I did remember the feeling though.

I was lying in bed, half asleep, when I felt and heard a rumble. Since I had experienced an earthquake previously in New Jersey, I was pretty certain as to what it was. Sure enough, when I turned on the news channel, there it was! Very cool.

I know it's off topic, but I thought the mountains were formed from plate techtonics, not earth quakes. I know it's similar but I don't think earth quakes formed our mountains.
You can't be serious, what exactly do you think an earthquake is anyway....? Please enlightened all of us uneducated on the subject.

We were in the midst of some serious conjugal bliss when she said "I just felt the earth move"!
I strutted around like a rooster all morning until I heard about the tremor.........sure deflated me in a hurry.
