Well, in NJ it felt like the equivalent of a 3.0 quake ..... wow, it was NOT a good feeling.

Coincidentally, the Almanac says that when the Moon Rides High, it starts a 5-day period where it is most likely to have earthquakes in the Northern Hemisphere.

I'm a believer. No wonder all the cats wanted to sit in my lap!

Anyone else experience this? As if a Hurricane on the way isn't bad enough!
