LOL. A friend in NH posted that she's bummed that they don't have any stores in their town worth looting and was upset because FEMA wasn't there within 30 minutes of the quake but was proud to report they plan to rebuild. LMAO. Cracked me up!

Hubby says we can't move to Maine now because it's too dangerous. ROFL

Felt like an earthmover was coming through the wall of our house. Thankfully nothing came off the walls or was otherwise damaged. The dog jumped up and looked around just minutes before the shaking.


Baby tremors leading up to " the Big One"?

I have been in a few here in Oregon, and it is a little nerve wracking. The first time it was early in the morning and woke me up. Weird thing my dog was acting all weird the night before.

They have done some significant damage not to me but Seattle got tossed pretty good and some building near the epicenter of "The Spring Break Quake" got damaged. I had a picture fall off the wall and a small crack in the plaster wall.

Did anyone worry there might be a Tsunami from that quake?

I just miss out on all the fun!

I didn't feel it at all in Searsport; haven't felt any of the other ones that have been around here in the past few years either.

It's almost disappointing, in a way -- almost.

I was in the "basement" of one of the USM buildings and never felt a thing...

Only knew of it cause the tenants were texting me from my place in south portland.

When I was a small child, I don't know why, but I actually found that relaxing, in how it sort of rhythmically shook the house.

I remember that it shook the house too when I was a kid. Our washing machine looked like a big round alien R2D2 with big arms sticking out and it kind of scared me. But it did put me to sleep though. I think mom did a lot of laundry in those days. As far as your recent quake, I don't much like any quake small or large. Too much of an uneasy feeling to me. Thankfully, we don't get them over here in the central valley too much. More in the bay area and southern cal.
