I'm in Silver Spring, MD and I definitely felt our baby earthquake. I woke up around 5 am and was drifting back to sleep when I heard and felt it. I thought it was thunder until it lasted for too long to reasonably be thunder. I've never experienced an earthquake before, but I distinctly remember my friends in Illinois freaking out when they had a similar tremor during our Snowpocalypse... Now I understand. It was pretty exciting!

I'm in Arlington, Virginia, and would have slept through it except everyone else in my house was freaking out. It woke up both kids (9 and 11) and my husband, who was sure it was a tornado because ... we don't have earthquakes in Virginia! I confirmed it from all the Twitter chatter before it was even posted on the USGS site. Love technology!
