The Great Delaware Earthquake !
« on: November 30, 2017, 10:10:32 PM »
I don't know if you guys were affected by it but damages are starting to pour in from all over the DelMarVa Peninsula they are expected to be in the 10's of dollars. The school that I work in 2nd shift had to be evacuated due to the possibility of damage, the damage list, one paper clip lost under a desk and one bottle of water spilled. I'm not sure how we are going to survive without that paper clip.

The spilled water is a potential slipping hazard and if they land on the paper clip you've got stabbings and all sorts! Ya best find dem tings!  :D :D

I didn't read anything in the news so I'm trusting this was real local?

Wow, 4.1 - so you actually felt it or did you think it was your cell phone on vibrate? :D  How long did it last and how deep was it?

So, I'm home alone watching Judge Judy, and I hear a rumble and figure Cowboy Bob must be home and backed into the house.  Picture me, Magoo like, with my little walker going to the kitchen, and not finding him home, but getting distracted by getting more tea, completely forgetting about the noise that roused me in the first place.  About ten minutes later, I hear on the news that an earthquake centered in Delaware, north east of Dover, was a 4.4. 

My son and his family live in Smyrna, and they were having dinner when it happened.  He said not much more than dishes in the hutch rattling. 

High excitement in the Delmarva Peninsula.   :D

I was working in my basement and didn't feel it. A buddy of mine from 5 miles away texted me that he felt it.

I remember the one back in 2011, for me it wasn't a shake it was like the house went down a couple of inches and then back up twice.

   I hear Congress is appropriating funds to dispatch specially trained mental health care workers to the area to help the victims recover from the trauma.

While this disaster is still fresh in everyones mind, you need to get some petitions started to stop all drilling for oil, even in the artic.

Sorry, but here in California a 4.1 isn't even big enough to interrupt our yoga sessions.

  We were going to rush down to our Delaware beach house but we are worried about after shocks, maybe next week when antlerless deer season comes back in.
