Okay, so it wasn't that bad. But still, it was a little scary. I've never felt an earthquake before, so when my apartment building started violently shaking, I was a bit shocked. I didn't know what was happening. I thought maybe the building was falling apartment below me. Now I know it was an earthquake. Here's a good informative read:
Apparently Virginia had a 5.8. I'm trying to call my family, and my phone isn't working at all (I don't know if Verizon is having problems or if they cut my phone service off since I owe them money). In any case, it was an interesting experience.
