    That's about what it felt like on Long Island. Now onto bigger things, like a hurricane...anyone know how to mix one of those?

    Although my permanent home and address will always be here in Oregon, I happen to be currently employed at a large semiconductor manufacturer located in Manassas, Virginia. I was on my lunch break, talking with my wife who is still in Oregon, when the whole building moved up and down and back and forth a couple of times. Even before the alarms went off, we all started evacuating into the parking lot. My wife got onto her computer while I was still on the phone and looked up the National Geological Society on the Internet. The site confirmed a 5.8 earthquake centered about 70 miles Southwest of Manassas.

    No one was hurt where I work, and it didn't take long for operations to resume to normal, but it was definitely a noticeable event. The product that we work on is delivered by overhead transportation, and is also stored between processes over our heads. These storage areas and the entire delivery system was swaying back and forth during the earthquake.

    It only took us a couple of shifts to go through and make sure that all of our processing tools were operating normally. And those that weren't were taken down for maintenance and investigation into what changed due to the earthquake.

    Everything seems to running fine now.

    We felt the quake up here in MA 500 miles away. Having never experienced a quake it really threw me for a loop. I was standing at work and I thought I was getting dizzy and falling over until I realized others felt it around me. Crazy weather this week...
