We came from California in 2006 and went thru many earthquakes there, Todays quake (Aug 23, 2011) felt pretty large even by California standards.
I was in Cockeysville when it hit, "That feels like an earthquake" I said in disbelief. Then it grew larger with a circular side to side motion, as it shook the house. "THAT IS AN EARTHQUAKE!" I said, then it grew larger still. I got a little worried at that point, knowing how bricks fall first during earthquakes.
Glad it stopped at 5.9, we don't need a 7.2 here!
Everyone ran outside there homes, and said did you feel that ,in some disbelief.
I said confidently "THAT WAS AN EARTHQUAKE" ... then raising my arms and doing a little wiggle,I said "AND IT WAS A GOOD ONE TOO! WOO HOO!!!"
As we prepare to move loose items around the house that might get blow away by Irene as it comes in, I NEVER expected an earthquake! John
