Our birds began freaking out just minutes before it hit, so I knew something was up. It was a very respectable tremor that sent our kitties flying. It lasted more than a 10-count where we live.
Today is primary day in Virginia, so it will be interesting to see how this will impact it.
As a long-time former Southern California resident, I experienced the Northridge quake when I was living just down from Sunset Blvd, which was epic.
I’ll likely not see the beasts the rest of the day… Our classic champagne flutes survived.

UPDATE: NBC’s Robert Bozell said something interesting; that the harder environment on the east coast versus the softer ground on the west coast made the tremor travel further and wider.
