I saw "5.8 earthquake in VA" and my first thought was "I wonder if they felt that..."

At 1:09 am eastern time I think we just had an aftershock. Good little shake for about 5 seconds followed by a more prolonged rolling feeling. Anybody else feel that? Only had a couple beers earlier this evening, pretty sure I'm not drunk enough to be imagining it.

One time my German Shepherd was lying against the foot of my bed when I was asleep and started scratching herself, I thought it was an earthquake.

Let me save you all some time...

I'm not crazy, and I have datalogs to prove it!

Edit: USGS is calling this one a magnitude 4.5.

Doesn't count...too low of a sampling frequency.

Joe Perez knows all. The animals have access to his secret twitter account where he tweets about upcoming earthquakes.

I hear that Joe Perez's Miata was actually the cause of the latest Earthquake.
