There was an earthquake at around 2pm today in Virginia, a 5.8 on the Richter scale. It was felt as far away as Massachusetts. Here in the NY/NJ area, friends reported seeing shaking computer screens, desk items falling over, etc.
I was in a store at the time. I thought my cell phone was vibrating in my back pocket. Took it out, checked it, put it away and kept on shopping. Then the fire alarm went off for about 30 seconds. I didn’t smell smoke…clearly a false alarm. Hey, look, nachos are on sale!
This does not bode well for my survival reflexes in the event of the Apocalypse.
