Yep, feeling it in Woodbridge today and it seems much more intense than yesterday. The house is shaking and the rumbles seem to be one after another.

We get it in S. Stafford/Fredericksburg, too! I think weather conditions play a big part in where and how loud this can be....I'm assuming "war games" at Quantico?

Yikes, I'm starting to worry now if people from Fairfax are hearing it. i remeber a few months ago when I was staying at my aunt's house in Woodbridge before moving to Manassas Park & it was shaking like crazy. I couldnt get any sleep & I work at nights.

I think you get used to it after awhile. The first few times I heard it I was like - what the heck is this? I too heard it this week and chalked it up to Quantico. Yes - weather conditions do play a big part in it and how far the sound carries. Last year people were hearing it in Vienna.

I've never heard anything living here in Vienna, for what it's worth - not now or last year.
