Shake, Rattle and Roll: Virginia's Earthquake Felt in Good Ole SC

 
I just experienced my second earthquake.

I had no clue what it was until I logged on to AOL and read a short news blurb that said a 5.9 quake hit Virginia. No info yet on where the center was, but I was in northern Virginia yesterday.

Today I'm back home in South Carolina. I was sitting in my recliner eating lunch when things started shaking. It probably lasted 5 or 6 seconds. At first I thought I was having an episode. Having discounted that, I thought it was just a big piece of earth moving equipment or some other uber-heavy vehicle driving by.

My only other earthquake experience was early one morning when I was visiting friends in Louisville. A quake hit somewhere in Indiana. I didn't need to turn on the news to figure out what was happening that time. Even though it was Kentucky, I knew it was a quake.

A quake today and the possibility of a hurricane on Friday.

Where's the plague of locusts?
