Not that I felt.

(But I did have a dream Monday night that we were hit by a hurricane.)

Check usgs.gov ...I did and there didn't seem to be anything.

Everytime I "feel a quake", it's a truck, and vice-versa.  Smile

No, Superfly was likely in Portland, banging another broad. Wonder where he left the used condom this time ?

I was watching two railyard streaming webcams and they started shaking and twisting. A guy walking on a pedestrian bridge over the yard suddenly stopped at the same time. He hunched down and hung onto the siderail with both hands. It wasn't the wind because the tree branches weren't swaying. It lasted about 15 seconds.

Oh there's a steady wind here, down along the river. Trees swaying and everything.

I've never seen those cameras sway that much before. I know that Mount St. Helens has been sputtering and having larger quakes for the past few weeks. And that Portland had a couple of quakes just north of the river recently.

If Portland had a significant earthquake, we would have felt it here to. We had nothing today. Also, my Mom and Sister are there right now, and they haven't said anything about an earthquake.

You can't feel a 2.3
