Exclamation

I slept through the Earthquake but not the wife screaming, "Get your fat ass out of bed we just had an Earthquake".

Was in my car on the way to work and missed it. Wife was in the shower and she didn't notice it either. Stepson was in bed and felt it, though.

I slept right through it. I think they are lying. Its a plot, like the f-16's in tipton county yesterday.

Perhaps, most of the aftershocks have been in the 2.x range and the one I felt was over 3.

I felt the earthquake this morning. I just thought there was high winds and the house was shifting like houses do. My SO said she felt the floor shake. I did hear it though. That is why I thought it was wind.

I didn't feel the aftershock, but a coworker of mine did.

aftershock

Coworkers said they felt it, but I did not. On 27th floor, not sure if it would transmit as well as my old frame house. Definitely woke me up this morning.
