Yeah, that was a pretty good rumble. So, that's what an earthquake feels like. Weird.

The earthquake was cool. I was working on my blog when everything started shaking! I ran outside and luckily my neighbor recently moved here from San Fransisco and told me what it was. Can't wait to see what WLOS does with this one. Ashvegas will get some great material!

Hey Screwy Hoolie, I think you proved that Asheville bloggers are more up to the minute than local news outlets (WLOS). Thanks!
