I'm pretty sure we just had a bit of an earthquake here. Maybe 7-8 seconds but pretty intense by east coast standards. Surprising.

I thought it was a helicopter. My wife - from California - said it was an earthquake. We're not far from you.

I called the Pond Road crew, all good. Don't need another of those for another hundred years. :eeek:

We felt it over here in Vermont, house rattled for a second or two then all was well.
