Baby tremors leading up to " the Big One"?
I remember reading Murphy's Law once where it said at some point there will be a big earthquake and everything east of California will drop off into the Atlantic.

I was out in Jefferson, NH, visiting Mt Washington, with friends from Jaffrey, NH. They said that they sure felt it in Jaffrey. Jaffrey is southwest of Manchester, about 75 miles southwest of the epicenter.

We did?

I didn't feel a thing. I didn't even know there was one until I read something on Facebook about it.

Maybe because I've lived on the west coast and have been through some strong earthquakes...I don't know but I felt absolutely nothing.

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?
Are you talking about the one in February 2001? THAT was a little scary. Ok, more than just a little. Pioneer Square got the most damage but that's because those buildings were older. The Fenix Underground is no more! =(

I wondered about people who might have been taking the Underground Tour at that time. NO thank you!

Oh and the Alaskan Way Viaduct was off limits for some time and then off limits to buses and large trucks for some time...that was a stretch of road I hated driving on because I would hate to be on that when a big one comes. From my understanding, they have ripped that down?

When I feel that up here in Maine...well...may as well just live in CA then.
