We just had an earthquake. I'm in the basement of a two story brick building. Needless to say we all met in the back parking lot. Way too weird for us.

Glad you're OK!!! That must have been just a tadbit startling! There wasn't any damage to anything was there?

Where abouts do you live? I live in Rotterdam, just on the border of Albany. We didn't feel anything here!

I grew up in California and saw a couple of really bad ones there, but only felt one here so far in 38 years!

Hope there was no one hurt and no damage!

That is interesting. I just felt something here in Southern Ontario and my husband thinks that I have lost my mind.

Didn't know they had earthquakes in NY. I'm a so cal native so I'm kinda used to them. But totally understand the shock and surprise when they happen.
