    We just had a 4.5 mag earthquake here!

    Weirdest one I've ever felt. In CA, AK, or wherever else I've been, it's always felt like the floor moved or dropped, this felt more like a silent explosion. I figured it was an earthquake but still went and looked outside to make sure nothing had crashed...

    I'm SO glad I'm not at the school with all the dramatics that must be happening there! And it's probably one of my children causing half of it. :laugh:

    Did it sound like a convoy of heavy trucks approaching? Glad you are ok!

    Feel sorry for the Christchurch folk,they have had over 1400 aftershocks, are they all on valium yet?
