What Was That? UPDATED

Just a few minutes ago, a shockwave came through my house. In about half a second, it started at one end and traveled through the house, rattled everything along the way. It physically shook me hard when it passed. I quickly ran outside to see if I could see anything. My first thought was earthquake. My next door neighbor was peering around the corner of her house and asked what that was. The roofing crew a few houses down paused from their work for a moment. I called Jennifer to see if she had felt anything, which she had not. Moments later, I heard a fire truck and other emergency vehicles in the direction that it came from. A quick internet search has returned no info. I wish I had a clue what just happened.

UPDATE – Looks like it was an earthquake. 2.7-2.8 is what they are rating it. LINK LINK Didn’t feel like prior earthquakes, and it sure shook hard for no more magnitude than that.

  1. An explosion? Heavy equipment or structure collapse? Collective wills of the middle class taxpayers imploding? Founding fathers rolling over in their graves?
