I guess I'm about 30 or 40 miles as the crow flies from the epicenter.

Actually, my brother (having nothing better to do) calculated that I was 25 miles from the epicenter.

Probably the only reason it made the news is that earthquakes are rare for this area. Can't figure out what the fault line is that moved.

lived in an earthquake zone. When you are sitting in a chair and it suddenly slams you against the wall, and there is a whoosh of air that feels like one standing on a highway shoulder and having a semi go by almost knocking you over, that is one kind of quake.
OR having the room just kind of move around a bit, like a cheap drunk, and it doesn't stop, inside or out, that is another.
OR feeling the whole world moving up and down without letting up for what seems like hours but are only seconds, and there is no place to go to get away from it. Bay Area Ca.
I don't miss them

We live a little south of the New Madrid fault line. It is not well known but has terrible potential.

Dave, ah, ya know, I'd be thinking about moving. We have a fault line that runs near us here on the mid-Atlantic coast. But, to the best of my knowledge, it's pretty tame compared to the west coast Quakes.
