This morning we were awakened early by the house shaking.  Yep, I have officially experienced my first EARTHQUAKE!  I find it ironic. 

Anyway, apparently it was a minor 3.6 magnitude quake.  It didn't even wake up the boys and Josh and I woke up long enough to wonder what was going on then rolled over and went back to sleep. 

Apparently Washington DC has had minor earthquakes in the past but this morning's was the strongest to hit within 30 miles of DC since they started keeping records (1974).

Pretty crazy!

See Usspost for an article on the quake.
There's also a cool seismic activity picture on the Maryland Geological Survey website but it is being really really slow loading right now.
