Earthquake!!!

Postby jpark - August 23rd, 2011, 2:04 pm

We had an earth tremor near Buffalo! 1:54PM local time.

It was just some minor rocking for a few seconds, then nothing, then more minor rocking a few seconds later.

:bill:

I read on Twitter that a few buildings in DC were evacuated about two minutes before we felt the tremors here.

There was also a major earthquake in southern Colorado this morning.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment...

Are you sure? A Rachel Ray Oval Pasta Pot could cause some serious shaking if it's not secured.
