My First Real Earthquake

Just felt my first substantial earthquake. Computer monitors were shaking on desks in office in Ballston, Virginia. Rumbled for about 15 seconds. The earthquake was 5.8, between Charlottesville and Richmond.

I remember ducking under desks when practicing in grade school for tornadoes. I've even messed around pretty close to the eye of a tornado. That was frightening. This was just sort of creepy. Especially since my office is right over the metro, which is always a potential terrorism hot spot.
