Buzzcam- Too funny! When I went to the tennessean.com this morning they had similar reviews of the quake. I didn't feel a thing and nothing in my house shook or was out of place this morning. The comments have really been quite dramatic I think. Like you said some people are acting like it happened right below Nashville.

I did actually feel a tremor about a month ago while standing in the bathroom. I bent down to pick something up and sort of felt this small wave like feeling. I looked at the toilet and the water was shaking. My husband didn't feel it, but he was lying down. I checked the earthquake report thingy and a small one did happen on the New Madrid fault. Felt another tremor about 2 years ago too.

Ok, there are my 'quake' stories..lol. My husband was in the Northridge quake though in LA..that's always an interesting story to hear.

I live in Gallatin. I was awake at 4:40 am sitting at my computer desk in the kitchen when my kitchen cabinet doors starting slightly opening and closing and the the lamp on my computer desk started moving back and forth. I thought, "So, this is what an earthquake feels like." It's the first one I've ever experienced.

I'm glad I slept through this. I live alone and that scares me enough as is. If I had been awake and started seeing my table shaking and the cabinets opening, earthquake would not have been the first thing on my mind and I would have been scared as heck.

We were in the Loma Prieta quake (SF) in 1989, so we found the coverage of this one to be hilarious.

If most Nashvillians didn't even feel it, why was it the lead story??

It's the news business! ;-)

One time last year they had predicted possible tornadoes. I think that night there was a storm, but not much of one. The next morning I watched the TV news. They had sent a reporter out somewhere. I guess he couldn't really find any damage, so there on the live newscast he pointed to a small, dead tree limb on the ground as proof of the "possible tornado". That was it . . . a tree limb. Then the cameraman zooms in for a close up of the limb in question.

Channel 2 sent a reporter out to interview someone for a live report, I think in Hendersonville, who "experienced" the earthquake. There she was standing in front of her undamaged house telling about the earthquake. At least, they could of thrown a few bricks or tree branches on the ground behind her to add drama to the story

When my brother and I both lived at home with our parents there was a very small earthquake in Missouri or somewhere. I didn't even feel that one but my mother did.

There was a back stairwell at my parent's house where you could go from the basement all the way to the unfinished attic. My brother would go outside, then go to the basement and up the stairs to the attic. If he straddled a couple of ceiling joists and jumped around a bit the whole house would shake and rattle.

I would in the kitchen with dear old mom and he would create the "earthquake". I would then yell to mom, "It's a earthquake! It's a earthquake! We're all going to die!" Mom would believe there actually was another quake. ;-)

I bet mom misses us.
