    Whole lotta shakin goin on!

    We had a minor quake here a few weeks ago,centered near East Freetown MA,not far from New Bedford,about 15 miles from my town!..I heard a sound like a sonic boom,but muffled,and my quonset garage rumbled a bit,and the overhead door rattled (I thought someone was trying to open it! :eek1: )--but I went outside and looked,nothing there!( I was in the garage at the time!)...no damage reported,just another minor tremor..they say we could get a big one here in the northeast someday,that we are overdue..hope I dont live to see it!..

    The weather is nuts this year!--have you watched the weather channel??--Floods in germany and romania,record drought in portugal,and many areas in the USA,record high temparatures,Hurricanes,Tornadoes,Typhoons,wildfires----maybe the bible was right --maybe we ARE approaching our last days! :eek1: :eek: :yikes: :1zhelp: :crazy:

    Me and the wife were awake and felt it. I went outside to listen for an explosion or look for a fire somewhere. Once I saw nothing I knew what it was. I actually filled out a report on the USGS website. I wasn't a big one by any means but it did get our attention
