our office in Rockville was briefly evacuated, but they're back at work

my cell is useless, landline is fine

I was expecting massive water line problems in DC, but no.

Felt it up here in MA as well, but only barely. I didn't even realize it was an earthquake at the time though.

Quite unusual for that area?

we get tiny ones from time to time, ones like yesterday are a 100-year event

in the TV news reports here we saw for a few seconds Obama getting the new on his cell phone while playing on a golf course

we didn't get to know whether after hanging up he quit the course, or he completed the 18 holes round

Why quit? A 5.8 isn't worth getting out of bed over.
