Here in the Balt/Wash corridor, I was heading in to work at 2pm when the earthquake hit. I didn't feel a thing on the roads, but when I got to work, everyone was in the parking lot. I thought it was a fire drill, since it was a beautiful day and it has been a while since we had one, so when someone told me it was an earthquake, I was quite surprised.
They ended up giving us the rest of the day off, but I stuck around for a couple of hours since the roads would be jammed solid.
As I write this, Hurricane Irene is blowing outside and headed our way. I usually comment on how I like Maryland since it is relatively free from natural disasters, but I guess I better shut up now!
