our living room couch and watching tv when it hit. I could feel the house swaying back and forth. It seemed to hit, then pause, then hit again. At first I thought it was just the couch rocking back and forth because I moved around too much, but my girlfriend ran in a few seconds later and asked "Did you feel that?!"
We've had other minor quakes in this area of New Jersey, but this is the FIRST one I ever actually felt. I can only imagine what it must have felt like if one was right over it in Mineral, VA!
According to the Mayan "End of Days" prophecy, based on their astronomical calendar, there will be increasing "upheaval" in the Earth AND human society as we approach the end of this 24,000 year great time cycle. That occurs on December 21st, of 2012...only about 1.5 years to go!
Now I'm wondering what the NEXT quake that hits the east coast of the USA will feel like!!!
