@Region Philbis,
Interesting. Quakes have been happening recently in all sorts of unexpected areas. Central Virginia rarely has one but had one a couple of years ago that damaged the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument. I sure do not miss them!

I felt this one too. I'm near Manchester NH. It's the only quake I've actually felt since one back in the 1980's when I lived in Haverhill MA.

I thought this one was a train at first, but when the building started to shake I figured it had to be an earthquake. I turned down the TV so my 3yr old daughter could hear it, but she was unimpressed (just wanted me to turn the TV back up again) Smile

So glad it wasn't bigger than that.

Saw this in the New Posts and clicked on it, and then realized most of the thread was about another earthquake entirely, a year ago.

So far I'm batting 0 for 2, never noticed either one. This time I was down in a basement watching a documentary video with about a hundred other people and never knew anything had happened til a couple hours later when I got back to a computer. I wonder if the difference is because buildings sway back and forth in quakes, while something below ground level just sits there

First the "shakes" and then the floods. Is this the end of the World?

@Lustig Andrei,

WHDH weather said we could definitely count on, among other things, "sideways rain" for a couple of days next week...

@tsarstepan,
Actually my informants tell me that the world (as we knew it) ended some time ago. If we're unaware of that, it's just 'cuz we're too dumb to realize we should just lie down and relax. It's sooooooo over!

Not me. I've not lived in Boston, or New England since 1999

@Miller,
The earthquake was nothing compared to the Hurricane ( Sandy ). We didn't have a power failure during the hurricane, but the 90 mph winds were unreal .

Things in NYcity were terrible too. Imagine having to evacuate a major city hospital in the rain and the winds...

didn't feel it, but there was a minor (1.9) quake in New Bedford, MA about an hour ago...
