    Well damn, about 15 minutes ago a 3.2 aftershock woke my ass up. Even though the "big" quake in Virginia was back in August, the aftershocks certainly haven't slowed down. I feel every tremor in my bed, so the one a little while ago was enough to wake me up. There was another good one a few nights ago that woke me up too.

    I don't see how a 3.2 is enough to wake you up.

    I don't understand why you were asleep and in bed at this hour.

    My bed seems to pick up the slightest vibration in this building. I was taking a power nap rather than a deep sleep anyway. Obviously the rumble was enough to wake me up.

    Of course people along the Pacific wouldn't notice. But hey, over here it's enough to alarm people. I'm sure every Alaskan and Californian made fun of the entire East Coast when that 5.8 quake happened in August, but something like that is pretty rare here! Just like when I make fun of my relatives in San Antonio, TX who freak out at the slightest dusting of snow on the ground.

    I was in San Antonio last year when it snowed one day in mid-January. I was so amused at how a small dusting of snow was enough to cause pandemonium in the city and have a 2-hour news special about it. Everyone got out of work and school that day. Hell, people started flooding all the HEBs as if a blizzard were coming. It was just a DUSTING that melted by the afternoon!

    Same with Arlington but then again we're a ridiculously small county with a disproportionate amount of funding so I think it was all about showing off.

    Ha... I remember when I was woken up on my birthday by an earthquake in San Antonio. I was like... WTF?! Then when I realized what was happenng... I was like OH HELL NO! and jumped under my desk! Being in a building built back in the 1920s had me feeling a little crazy. Fracking needs to stop... ASAFP!
