I live about 60 miles from the epicenter yet felt nothing.
It did sound like a freight train going through my back yard for about 15 seconds though.

if it makes you feel better...
I was living out in Calif back in the 80's when I went through my first quake... something like a 4.8
I don't remember the quake itself... but I do remember my wife smacking me on the shoulder "Quite shaking the bed, I'm trying to sleep!" that was my first quake experience..

More photos of the damage can be found here. A few of the photos actually look like things were shook up quite a bit.

From where I sit the Pentagon always looked crooked... and I'm not referring to the Four walls and a spare aspect...

Still ya gotta admit it was their first quake of any size in what... 114 years...pretty exciting stuff... your first time around... live in a place where that happens every year and well the magic wears off pretty quickly

Well, they did find out that the Washington Monument wasnt tilting, but did suffer some damage and is therefore closed indefinately

Yes the monument does look crooked, or perhaps it always was and we didn't notice?
Or we could just call it "The Leaning Tower of Washington"

Thanks for the good laugh.

I live in CA and don't get too upset unless there is a big shake.

I was recently in Costa Rica and there was a magnitude 6 quake. I was at the airport and people literally started running around in circles screaming. The guy that was announcing the boarding of our plane dropped his microphone and ran away.

My wife and I sat in our chairs and kind of went whoa that was a good shake. But, it wasn't worth coming unhinged about .

the people in the same house as me didnt know untill hours after. difference was they where on the first floor and i was asleep in the attic. could feel floorboards bending and doors where banging but everyone 2 floors below was oblivious. now i understand how easy it is to mistake those for poltergeist if you didnt know better.
