    I felt it down in Concord, but at first I didn't think it was an earthquake and that the people downstairs were just being noisy and knocking stuff around lol. It was pretty weak by the time it reached here.

    Felt it here too, my folks and I left the house so fast you would have thought it was on fire. First noticeable quake I'd ever been in.

    Felt it, but it felt like the dryer was on and the load was not in right and bouncing around so I paid no mind to it, until later when family called asking if we felt the earthquake and I asked what earthquake. My parents were disappointed because they were in the car and did not feel it.

    Felt it in Washington NC.

    First a little rumble for just a second or two, then a few seconds later, an extended "rolling" that lasted for about 15 seconds or so. It shook my ceiling fans and made my glasses rattle in the kitchen. The cat got a little freaked out. But no damage, just a little weirded out.

    At first I though one of the Osprey V-22s from LeJune was hovering a little too low, then I realized I didn't hear any engine noise...

    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
