Default Did you feel the EARTHQUAKE!

Holy sh*t, sitting at my desk in NJ, thought a co-worker was behind me pulling my chair, than everyone said: "did you feel that?"
Apparently it was centered near Washington DC. More news to come...

I am in CT and work on a trading floor with about 1000 employees on the floor...you should have seen the look on everyone's face as everyone stood up. All the glass in my building was moving/flexing and I could easily see it in the suns reflection moving.... it was pretty crazy!!! Can't imagine what the real thing would feel like....
