Yikes! 5.8 Earthquake!

I was gonna sleep another hour, but the last few minutes has been too exciting. I turned the TV on, and nobody knew anything about it, nor did the Weather channel online or on TV. Then the NBC middle-of-day person came on and talked about Libya. Then she said we had a 5.8 earthquake from Mineral, VA and that the Capitol and Pentagon were being evacuated. It woke me up well enough to make sure we were all out of the bedroom -- the bookcases aren't attached to the wall -- and Junie hid for her good spot in the bedroom by herself. Apparently they're feeling jiggles up in Manhattan.

More later.
