    Earth Quake !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We had one this morning about 5:15AM I was wondering what woke me up so early. My son Jarrod said he was sitting have his morning coffee and he live close to RR tracks and thought a fright train was passing.

    Yup sure did.

    "Shortly after 5 AM local time (2 am PST), a 3.6 earthquake centered 10 miles from Rockville, Maryland struck the region. Unlike earthquakes of this magnitude in recent days across the U.S., centered normally in mountain ranges and coastal waters, this earthquake was located in a densely populated region."

    According to USGS. when I lived in Cal. we never noticed a 3.6

    You don't want to know why I think we had one near my house. CLOSE TO DC, THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE GOVERNMENT HUB. MAYBE NOVEMBER IS TRYING TO COME EARLY.

    Although a 3.6 is pretty mild as earthquakes go, if you've never felt an earthquake before, it's definitely enough to get your attention...especially if you're close to the epicenter. I'm glad it was nothing more than a bit of shaking for you.

    We had a 5.4 out here last week that made the local news, but I didn't see anything mentioned elsewhere.

    maybe its a more powerful force trying to tell washington to take their finger out of the dyke while the entire wall is crumbling around them.

    Let's be careful, guys and gals. This is starting to lean toward the political...
