Whoa... I just felt my first earthquake!

The whole office shimmied, kinda like the "Crossgates shake," but side to side. Apparently, it was a 5.9 magnitude quake in Virginia, but it was felt all the way up here in Schenectady -- according to Twitter, it was even felt by some people in Toronto. Neat!

Mind you, living on the west coast, where they're huge and frequent, probably wouldn't be neat at all. But for us, it's a novelty, sorta cool, especially since right here, it was mild, strong enough to notice but not to do any damage.

Oddly enough, though, I'm hearing word of evacuations. Seriously? Shut down all business and flee, for that? In Virginia, maybe, but here, where it was just a shimmy? That's just silly.

Edit: Weird... apparently, there was a 2.2 one this morning, too, around 6:30, and centered near here. But nobody seems to know anything about that one (or have anything to say about having felt it).

Edit: And... my boyfriend's office has been sent home for the day. What bums. :-P
