    Yeah, that explains Cleveland.

    Everything's cooler on the West Coast.

    I don't like earthquakes and I missed the big two -- Loma Prieta and Northridge. But I've had enough of the medium ones to last a lifetime. Watching your walls wave to-and-fro is not fun. I'd much rather deal with a twister, cuz I can see it.

    I was at work.
    Was using the reach truck to put some mulch up in a top shelf - had the sucker all the way up, and I had a slight feeling of vertigo I could not explain at the time.
    When I heard at lunch that we had the quake, it made sense.

    It woke me up, though I went back to sleep. I thought I was dreaming until somebody mentioned it earlier today.

    It wasn't an earthquake.

    It was the Earth's way of showing displeasure that Juan Castro is still a Red.

    I woke up and looked at the clock at it was right around 4:40 (central), so I guess I now know why.

    Wish I would have been up to feel it.

    Here's a cool website. This guy predicts earthquakes based on (among other things...) high tides and newspaper reports of runaway cats.

    Yeah earthquakes suck unfortunately for me living close to a geyser we get quite a bit of seimic activity. Haven't experienced anything big in this area just a bunch of small to moderate size quakes. Last summer we got one about the same size as the one that hit the midwest this morning while I was at work. That was a rather interesting quake, their usually either a drop or a shimmy this one though was a drop then a shimmy that lasted for a few seconds. Afterward it was funny to see all the heads popping out of their cubes and then the candy vending machine fell over causing the heads to duck back in to their cubes.

    More worried about tidal waves and volcanoes? Is Mt. St. Helens acting up again? Think I've mentioned this before, but I actually witnessed a volcanoe eruption once and it is truly a scary event. NASA has a cool little program called worldwind http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/ that not only lets you zoom in on any town, but also look at land marks like Mt. St. Helens. The last time I looked at it you could see the lava dome inside the crater and a ploom of smoke coming out, that was a few years ago though.

    Re: Minor Earthquake in Cincy and the Midwest?

    I was already at work friday morning as we start at 4 am central.
    Most everyone on our shift was on a third story floor doing a wharehouse type inventory.
    Needless to say, the whole floor began swaying back and forth and we even had some product vibrate out on the floor.
    It was a very un-nerving experience.

    I maintain there's a third type -- rollers. One of these hit as I was in a Tower Records in LA. You could hardly tell it was a earthquake. I just thought I was getting light-headed until I saw everyone in the store look up from the bins.

    This could be his concern:
