Default Earthquake, anyone?

Richmond just got hit by a 5.9 earthquake, felt in Chapel Hill, N.C., Pittsburgh, PA & NYC.

Anyone else feel the effects of my temper tantrum over possibly missing Matt's fight?

You're obviously okay! Just saw them reporting on it just minutes ago. A man this morning at the gym said there had been a 6.+ in New Mexico and Colorado--haven't seen anything yet on that. What's going on!?

I heard when they broke in they felt it in NY and the capital, but I didn't hear about North Carolina until I read Ben's post. Seems kind of freaky to have two earthquakes in different parts of the U.S. where we haven't seen them before...at least in my lifetime.

Colorado had a 5.3 yesterday. Apparently buildings as far north as Ontario were shutting down because of this.

I & my family are fine & I just got a txt from Mark (Llama) asking me "What's shakin?", so I'm assuming he's OK, too.
