Given the forecast for Hurricane Irene, it looks like the DC area gets to deal with an earthquake and a hurricane in the same week.
Actually the hurricane will prob cause more damage given that it is supposed to rain before the hurricane gets here, so there will be some flooding. Although I heard that the National Cathedral had some damage b/c of the earthquake.

yeah....it wasnt fun. but damn this wiskey and ginger is tasting yummy now. I can say with certainty i much rather deal with the coming hurricane than that bullsh*t. Ive been through a hurricane and that's cake compared to the ground moving so violently below me. sounded like a train as the buidling shook.

Also, we have a hurricane scheduled to hit this Saturday. Good week for mother nature.
Yeah. I had got off the phone with her just before you called. Just kidding, no offense.

Re: Earthquake in DC!

I was at work in Bethesda and the building started shaking and me and my friend looked at each other like.. Uhm? But it was over in less than 10 seconds. Nothing fell over, no one died, but people panicked for about a good 10 minutes afterwards.
