questionsthe bed bumped and shook....


Glad you're are our rock that never shifts!


@thunderthighs: It's actually worse when something is taken out and nothing is put back in to replace what was removed.


Well hot damn. That epicenter is like 2 miles from my apartment, but I was up in Denton at a party last night and didn't feel a thing. I bet my dog was freaking out at home though...


@jimeezlady: Ya gotta figure that if you're taking something out of the earth and force feeding it something else, it's gonna burp now and then.


It's the fracking!!()
Somebody had to say it... :-D

Grew up on the west coast and I've learned that earthquakes feel VERY different out here! "A car hitting the house" is pretty accurate. The one semi-strong quake we had here (170 mi north of you) felt like the whole house jumped straight up and slammed back down followed by a very slight vibration. We were convinced something had hit our house too!


Dang it!, missed it by a few hours, spent the evening in Southlake and had dinner in Irving, but we were home south of Dallas when it hit.


@philey: Oooh, that's cool. I turned in my report. Thanks!


I remember hearing once that my town is on a fault line, so I went and found this pdf that covers East Texas fault lines. Interesting stuff. The last paragraph freaked me out a little.

"No geologic evidence indicates that any of these faults poses a seismic threat to a hypothetical nuclear-waste repository."


@shrdlu: Just napping before time for the midnight rollover. I said to my dog (who I thought was under the bed): Either you gave the bed a good bump or my house is falling down. Figured it was an earthquake though.


I didn't feel it at all here in Arlington.


@thunderthighs: I hope this didn't wake my daughter up. She's used to earthquakes, but not one in TX.

Sorry you were awakened.


@rprebel: Yeah, small one. For me it was a thump that shook the wall for a second. Someone else described it like a car hit the house. That's pretty much spot on.

Not strong enough to much, if any damage. Some in Grapevine felt it. Not sure about Flower Mound.


Wait, what? An earthquake in north TX? Is everything okay? I have family in the Flower Mound/Grapevine area.
