How exciting was that? 5.9 on the Richter scale centered near Richmond, Virginia! I wonder what it was here in Maryland (a co-worker is speculating around a 3).
I was standing in front of a fume hood, when the hood began to shake. I looked up, wondering if someone was doing work on the roof of the building. Then I thought, nah, maybe a big truck is going by. But as the next few seconds passed, and the shaking didn’t stop, I moved into the hallway, and saw my computer monitor through the office door shaking like crazy. I have never experienced an earthquake before, and it was really kind of cool.
