Did you feel the earthquake?

Did you see this article in the NY Times?

Apparently there was a 5.0 earthquake that was felt here in NYC that originated in Ottawa yesterday at 1:45 p.m.

I was lying on my bed for a minute--T was asleep--and I felt the bed shaking. At first I thought S had climbed on beside us and then I looked and she was not there. The bed was still shaking a little. It kind of felt like there was a subway going by next door (minus the sound and smell).

Did you NYC friends feel anything?

Not a thing. Must have been the Spirit was too strong. (I had my visiting teachers over ;)

Nothing. At least I don't think I felt anything. If I did, my subconscious probably rationalized it as being the rumbling of the subway underneath our old apartment. ;)

I didn't feel a thing either. Which is weird because I spent my entire childhood being paranoid about earthquakes and actually at one time felt one that I'm pretty sure no one else did (except for maybe the seismologists...)
