    We here in New England just had an earthquake. 4.5, centered in southern Maine, and quite emphatically felt here in Lexington, Mass., at least at my house.

    Sort of rare for that part of the world, eh?

    I'll let Mr. Gee speak for himself, but isn't there a significant fault along the Hudson River Valley?

    Man, I swore this was a D_B about the release of the Zumba johns' names.

    I have no idea of the geology of New England except that it has lots of rocks right underneath wherever you want or need to dig.

    That's what I fully expected too.

    Down here in CT, I didn't feel it (I was outside), but my sister said her wall pictures shook.

    Who sneezed?

    Joking. If you don't experience them or have, they can be unsettling.

    I don't think it's that rare, but usually on a very small scale. The CBS sports station out of Boston had a meteorologist on for a few minutes. Some Intretesting stuff. Did you know the Richter Scale is no longer used to measure quakes?

    4.5? Out here, that's like the train rumbling down the tracks, not a big deal. 6.5? Now you're talking.

    I've always wondered what one felt like. Now I know.
