Anyone feel the earthquake last night?

I was sitting in front of the computer last night when I felt the floor shake for a few seconds.I thought "what the heck was that?'.I have some neighbors upstairs that stomp around some but I knew it wasn't that.I get up today and read there was a 5.3 quake near Trinidad at the time my floor was shaking.Earthquake never crossed my mind as the possible reason for it.

Apparently one just hit Virginia.

Sounds like one of our non-allies is trying to tune their HARP array

It's HAARP with two A's





















(edit) Looks like a fairly decent sized quake right on the CO/NM border last night:

Here's the link to MontyCarlo's map as seen above...

and it shows that they already have had a 2.2 aftershock.

I spent too much time in Japan so I knew what was happening before my logic could agree. It was hardly felt in the Denver metro but still a quake.

It was funny to hear people's reactions today. Most had no idea but got out if bed because they "heard something".
