    Felt it in northern VT. Not just a low rumble either. The building actually swayed. I was shocked to find out it was centered so far away.

    We had the tremors from a similar sized one in southern Canada last summer, but this felt much stronger. There was no doubt at all what it was.

    I reported to USGA too. I LOVE a good map!

    Talked with my mother in Virginia Beach. She did not feel it.

    My mother in law in Virginia sure did. She couldn't wait to tell me she was on the toilet at the time.

    I was going ask if she had a successful movement but there was already TMI.

    Lol. No problem. The jokes haven't stopped since, especially given that she shares a name with the hurricane [bearing down] upon the east coast.
