Yes, we all did. It happens more than you think, this one was just more noticable.

EDIT: 5.4

It was a 5.4 apparently. When was the last time you remember that happening?

About 4 years ago there was a similar one. Felt about the same but I was living in Chicago at the time.

I didnt feel this one as much as the one four years ago. Last time I thought a car rolled off the street behind my house and hit my house.

I'm surprised how long that lasted. Did you notice how long it took for the birds to start chirping again?

EDIT: The duration of the earthquake surprised me. Did you notice how long it took for the birds to start chirping again?

...Before that first sentence got turned against me.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep and my bed was vibrating and my windows shook a little bit and at first I thought I was losing my mind but then I remembered I already lost it so I thought a plane crashed at the airport down the road... It was very weird.
