My First Earthquake: From Hasbro

I didn't even know it was an earthquake until the next morning when I heard about it on NPR. Otherwise it would have just blended into the day's events. But last Tuesday at about 1:30 there was a quake of about 1.8 on the Richter Scale near DC.

Everybody in the office thought it was something different.

I thought someone was pushing a very large and overloaded cart down the hall one floor up.

My boss thought that the landscaping crew was unloading more boulders and had accidentally dumped them all at once.

Some people thought it was the blasting out at Ft. Belvoir.

There was only the slightest tremble in the building and a loudish rumbling sound.

A couple people don't remember noticing anything.
