    Felt it last night while drinking around a fire pit in Tulsa. This has to be the best comment ever though.

    Ah, good 'o Oklahomo! How I miss thee, not! I came from a small town called Miami (myamah, not myamee) about an hours drive north east of Tulsa. Something like this would have been our top news of the day - Lost hat found in tree.

    I am so happy that I ran away from that horrid place when I turned 18. What a nightmare! icon_twisted.gif

    Not a NEO fan there CuddleBuddy? haha. I have been all around the country and Europe, but honestly I am ok with it here. The people are friendly and the cost of living is low. Every places has problems no matter where you live.

    Actually, I agree with you about the people there being friendly and down to earth. Everyone is so nice and will talk to you no matter who you are. I miss how people say hi to you when you walk down the street and smile at you.

    On the other hand, it's home to good 'ol gay hating Sally Kern, and the people there are not very accepting of the GLBT community or us Freethinkers. I think they would be more accepting of gays than Freethinkers, but to be both would be enough to make an Oklahomian gasp and cry in pain. Oklahoma, I found, isn't a kind place for us alternative folk who questions authority and religious dogma, hence the reason I left when I was 18.

    An earthquake of very similar magnitude struck in the 1950s... This is not the coming apocalypse.

    I'm waiting for the right-wing evangelicals to claim it's God's judgment for Oklahoma allowing any gays to live within their State. Just like when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. icon_razz.gif

    Hope everyone is ok up there.... us lot down in Christchurch NZ can really relate to the quakes!

    On the positive, we have finally been allowed in to see our CBD (or whats left of it). We will end up with a totally rebuild town centre - heaps of green space and NO TALL BUILDINGS! (phew). Well once the insurance companies finally pay out. MEH.

    Hang in there and hope the aftershocks are not too bad

    Tornadoes, ice storms, floods, and blizzards happen every year; earthquakes are not so common here. Buildings are designed to be strong against the onslaught of the other things, but not against ground movements.

    @CuddleBuddy: You do have a point there.
    @onyourbike: Thanks, but the damage is nothing like what you all had. It's just disconcerting since the past two years they have been getting more frequent and stronger.
    @Art_Deco: Give it time.

    It was indeed odd.. I was in bed and felt it. I thought my beagle was scratching himself and shaking the bed. I sat up and realized he was on the floor. I wondered what the ....

    I heard most people around Wichita felt it.

    So true. I'll take a twister over an earthquake any day.
