Feel the earth move under your feet?
Yes, it's possible the earth did move a bit in the Washington metro area on Wednesday.
One of our Twitter followers @karljohn, who also blogs at We Love DC, tipped us off to his post about buildings in Alexandria doing a little swaying about 2 p.m.
Our own Phillip Lucas tells us there was a 5.0 earthquake in the Ontario-Quebec region. Officials at the U.S. Geological Survey said that people were reporting that they felt the earthquake from as far away as Alabama. In fact, there had been so many reports that the USGS stopped displaying them all on their website.
So yes, the earth may have stirred a little.
