It rattled the ceiling tiles of our office building. At first I thought, "Bomb!" but then it went on too long. LOL

It shook me right out of a deep sleep.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!

I felt it! We're in Indian Head in Charles County. We had just had oil delivered that morning and I thought the boiler was about to blow, so the kiddos and I took off outside the house. The house shook something awful, but not a single thing was out of place when we got back in.

I work in King George and live in Calvert County. Our building started shaking and swaying and we all took off outside! I tried calling my husband and my daughter to let them know I was ok but couldn't because cell phones werent' working. The bridge I cross to get back home was closed and all I could think of was my daughter is due to have a baby any day and what if this was the day!! I didn't feel any aftershocks-

Certainly, that made total sense for you.

I was only speaking for myself. My 82 year old mother was really frightened and I had to make sure she was safe, plus people were leaving their buildings and I thought it right to also go outside.

Life has its' surprises.

Actually, my son went first to the internet to see what did actually happen when I told him I thought it was an earthquake----and I was on Spark about 20 minutes after it happened to make sure my friends were alright as this is where I communicate the most---and figured it was better not to tie up phone lines in case of real emergencies.

Of course I felt it. Thought the A/C exploded and scared me to death when the big bang was followed by violent rattling of slider door glass, all trying to jump out of their tracks or burst themselves.

Who came here at a time like this. We were making sure others were calmed once we got the news.

Sure did! I was in Catonsville with my mom sitting near her window and felt the first ripple or tremor, then then larger one and she asked what is that - and I said it is an earthquake! Her lamps were shaking. When I got home to our 3rd floor apt. in Glen Burnie, there were pictures down, one broken, and the dishes in my china closet were laying down instead of up - none broken thank goodness. A few pictures on the wall were tilted and stuff that I had on top of my kitchen cabinets fell over. Most of all, my cats were hiding for a long while!!!

Have a great Spark Day!

Yup, I was at work near BWI. At first I thought it was a plane then when I realized it wasn't going away and there was no plane me and my coworker jumped up and walked outside. Craziest part was seeing all of the cars shaking outside.

Best thing I've ever tasted:

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good... Psalm 34:8

Kind of surprised no one on the team started this one---I was sitting on my couch with my gd---at first I could not figure out what was going on---thought my washer had gone nuts on me---but then realized that I did not have it on---then kind of realized that it might have been an earthquake---my son went on internet and found out it was. Not something I want to feel again!
