      I was sitting on my couch watching the Mentalist….when my home began to shake….like a big truck was driving by….then it got bigger and bigger…..almost feeling like it was rolling. Then I watched my modem (it sits upright) rock back and forth…..WOWZEROOOOONIE.

      It was a 4.6 earthquake located in Hollis ME….116 miles away!!! my heart has finally settled down!!!

      WOW Lynne…that's highly unusual for New England isn't it? Pretty scarey too, I would think. Hope everyone is okay.

        Lynne, that is the scariest feeling, isn't it?
        I felt the one in (was it Virginia?) a year or so ago. It took a few seconds to realize that this was really happening…
        Was there any damage in ME?

            Isn't that scary when it happens. We had a big one (about 6.5 or something) here last year and I was kind of like What the heck are the stupid cats doing?, thinking they were running after each other up and down the stairs. Then I realized my computer desk was shaking and my vertical blinds were swaying back and forth.

              It was the strangest feeling every……..and scared the bageeeberzers outta me!!!
              Felt like the ground was just rolling.

              They are pretty rare in NH…..just can't imagine what a 6.something would be like!!! OH MY WORD!!!

                  Scary indeed. We had a Swarm I think they call it of small earthquakes last fall. Nothing big but still disturbing.

                      Yikes! Glad you are okay, Lynne! I HATE earthquakes. I had a bad scare when I was small- we were watching ET in the movie theatre- we had to get under our seats, and beams from the ceiling were falling. It was terrifying. Ever since then, it makes me ill to think about it. I guess I didn't know that there were a lot earthquakes on the east coast.

                      EEEK! That's a little scary! I've never experienced one.

                        Oh Lynn, what a scare!!! I hate earthqukes! I lived in San Francisco 1989, you know, when the Bay Bridge fell. We lived in an old Victorian house and it swayed like a willow in the wind. Basically,it came off it's foundation and we had to move.

                            That's not something I ever want to experience! Sorry you had such a scare Lynne.
