    Yes! Yes, I felt it!

    I felt it! My wheelchair shook, and I felt the damn earthquake sitting in my backyard here in Huntington, Long Island!

    Actually, I wined to my caregiver (sitting behind me on a garden chair, with his feet extended on the back of mine) to please stop shaking my chair, since he's known for often annoying me like that. Only when he stood before me did I realize that,l shite, here I'm missing yet another piece of fun cuz of this sci, "the big quake of 2011".

    Otherwise, nothing ever happens on my block.

    Dang, everybody gets quakes but us. All we ever get is tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and mosquitoes. We are glad everyone is safe.

    I was also lying down and I thought my dog was jumping on and off the bed a couple times, no dog in sight, I thought it was creepy, then I heard about the earthquake and it all made sense.

    yeah jimmy it was kinda creepy but kinda interesting too. I lived in CA for a few years as a kid and have a vague recollection. The quakes totally creeped my mom out so we moved back to the east coast. Hopefully we wont be experiencing anymore or anything worse for a long time? yikes.

    now we can look forward to the storm headed up the coast this weekend, right? gawd...

    This was my second and we were in a panic for a few minutes....

    I felt a tiny one in Arizona but this was huge compared to that one. The lamp fell over in the bedroom.

    The look on Larry's face was priceless though.

    I was scared to death.

    I was at work in central North Carolina and we felt it. At first I was the only one who felt it and everybody accused me of being dizzy! Then when they felt it they changed their tune. As I said on Facebook...I am not fond of earthquakes! !
