Earthquake!

Really odd day today. It was a normal day at work and I was done with lunch and getting back to work when I noticed I was wobbling in my chair a bit. I thought someone was fucking with me but when I turned around, nobody was there moving the chair and it was moving me of its own accord. Then I noticed that other things in the room were moving and when I stood up, the wibbly-wobblyness continued.

After going out into the hall and conferring with other bewildered co-workers, we figured it was an earthquake and then it was pretty much over. Turns out that there was a 5.9 magnitude quake in central Virginia and we felt the shocks all the way up in NJ. Hell, they even reached as far as Toronto.

No damage and I checked to make sure my family in VA was ok. They were. Odd experience. I mean, nobody really expects an earthquake so having one hit you is a rather unusual feeling. I'm glad everyone is ok.

Now after this, we have to worry about the fucking hurricane that's heading our way. Joy.
