    Just happened. I'm gonna go with 2.3 on the Richter scale, with the over/under at 1.8-2.7.

    Anybody else feel that? I'm 10 minutes East of Manchester. I think whoever is closest to the epicenter should get free Super Cedars.

    Felt it here in SE Mass
    Had just sat down on the couch and put my feet up.
    5-7 seconds. Just long enough to prompt check USGS site.
    Very slight. Probably wouldn't have noticed it if it had been earlier and I was out in the yard.

    It scared the B-Jesus out of me as I am only 2 and a half miles from epi-center.....No damage at my place as far as I can tell.

    Didn't feel a thing . . . no need to send the National
    Guard up here to help . . . or the FEMA trailers.

    We're coping well in the aftermath.

    I thought it was a plane landing at Manch, but thought "huh- they never caused actual shaking before"

    The water line for the fridge that runs through the basement floor joist to the fridge upstairs dropped down and started to sway, I was just starting a fire when the wife saw it....she said what do you think caused that !!! I replied what did you do hit it. :oops: We never felt it but I would bet that is what caused it.
