Was just working on a song while sitting on the floor with my acoustic 12-string and felt the shaking here in western Maryland. After 30 years in California, this is a piece of cake.

I’m in Annapolis and felt it too. It was as strong as anything I ever experienced in the Seattle area. Lasted about 25 seconds and felt fairly dramatic. I’m guessing 4.5 on the Richter scale.

So it wasn’t my imagination!

If the center was DC, perhaps it was precipitated when a politician told the truth.
