Since we're talking Washington, D.C., I wonder if it's leaning to the left or the right?

Whichever way it leans, the other side will blame the opposition for the earthquake.

This reminds me of the accounts that I have read of the New Madrid quakes of 1811-1812, which was the largest in US history. While one account was in a novel, which I admit would be dramatized, it said that the animals were acting so crazily the two days prior to the first quake, that even the squirrels were running amok in herds. That is somewhat understandable, but apparently the quake was also heralded by a large comet, which some took as a omen.

Earthquake!

An earthquake broke out in Virginia apparently (my brother lives there, he's hoping his apartment isn't damaged too badly...). Around noon, I felt my house start shaking violently... and I live in New York.

Oklahoma Earthquake?
I was quite surprised that ~20 minutes ago, that my apartment started shaking for a few moments. While some Californians would find this too common to comment, it is very rare here. I have NEVER felt an earthquake here before, even though Googling, I found that there are a few minor earthquakes...
